The first issue of the fourth volume of ChemUnique, the in-house chemical engineering magazine, has been released. It was released on the 28th of July at the inaugural function of the IIChE chapter for the academic year 2015-16.
It was an amazing experience – working with seniors and my classmates alike. I have learnt more than just a thing or two about leadership, gauging people and teamwork. It’s true that editing is not new to me but the level of precision that my seniors expected has most certainly changed the way I look at language. Perhaps the most important skill I have acquired is writing formal emails and email etiquette. The first formal email I drafted took me more than 30 minutes!
I must thank Keerthana Krishnan, a final year student and also the ex-Editor of the magazine for her guidance on matters both professional and otherwise. I look forward to editing the next two issues with my team.
