Congratulations to Rebecca Power who has been awarded the PM Group Process Design Project Medal for her final year design project in Cork Institute of Technology’s Chemical and Biopharmaceutical B Eng. Degree programme.
Rebecca was recognised for her contribution to her team’s project which involved designing a manufacturing process for Bulk API Ranitidine Hydrochloride to treat gastric ulcers.
Taidgh Horgan, PM Group Senior Process Engineer, was a mentor and worked closely with Rebecca and the team on the Ranitidine project.
The PM Group Process Design Project Medal is awarded annually to a Final Year student of CIT’s Chemical & Biopharmaceutical B.Eng Degree. As part our CR programme, we are pleased to support CIT though ongoing activities such as design seminars and mentoring for student design projects.
