Delyth Williams (CEng, MIChemE), Refinery Chemical Engineer at the Phillips 66 Humber oil refinery, Chemical Engineering graduate

Delyth says: "My time at Swansea gave me four years of fantastic experiences that have served me well in the challenging environment of the oil industry. Not only did Swansea give me the engineering skills required to progress with a career in the oil industry, it also provided me with many key life skills.

The department was a friendly close knit group that meant valuable working relationships were developed at all levels including lecturers and senior members of the department. In addition the department had many extra-curricular activities that students were actively involved in organising and planning - from the annual cheese and wine party to the more serious industrial training visits".
