Northeastern University chemical engineering students embark on a process safety venture during spring break to Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.
Ten Northeastern University chemical engineering students elected to head North instead of South for their Spring Break. The venture is a part of a new international program initiative to offer international experiences to students during the Spring Break as part of their educational experiences. The group led by Prof. Ronald J. Willey, Professor Chemical Engineering, Northeastern will focus on process safety along with some cultural activities in the Province of Quebec Canada. Their plans include performing a Hazard Analysis of a laboratory area at the University of Sherbrooke, possibly working with some fellow Canadian students. They will also visit a paper mill and a chlorine producer based on the Province. The week finishes off in Quebec City with a surprise or two awaiting them.
