Laura Ann Chin
Class of 2010, BS in Chemical Engineering
After graduating I pursued graduate school, also in chemical engineering, at Villanova University (Class of 2012) – a fellow Wildcat. My passion for chemical engineering did not end on graduation day, but continues to be a driving force behind the work I do on a daily basis.
I have grown so much over the past few years: From starting my career in the biotechnology and life sciences industry with Jacobs Engineering to CRB, to my current position consulting as a process engineer for Genesis Engineers in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. I still am actively involved with the professional chapter of AIChE because I am a firm believer that chemical engineering extends to communities beyond the workplace.
I'm so honored to be mentoring Dr. Kim Ogden's spring 2017 senior design class, as my group's project aligns very closely with the work I do in biotechnology. In 2015, when I was awarded Young Chemical Engineer of the Year by AIChE, my message to my fellow chemical engineers was never be afraid to work hard, to continuously challenge yourself beyond your comfort zone, and to stop comparing yourself with others. Set your own goals and standards, and strategize your resources to make them happen!
