What It Is

In 2016, Minerva Canada partnered with the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada, the Canadian Society of Chemical Engineering and the University of Waterloo Cases in Design Engineering group in establishing the Minerva-CIAC Responsible Care case study competition. This competition is open to all engineering students from all engineering disciplines and registered at Canadian institutions. Three prizes will be awarded in 2017 of $1,000 (First Prize), $500 (Second Prize) and $250 (Third Prize) at the Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference student banquet.

A notice from the Chemical Institute of Canada will be sent to all Canadian Engineering Schools sometime in August or September with the case study, dates for submission and the rules for the Competition.
