CHBE students among APSC Rising Stars

Every year UBC’s Faculty of Applied Science takes nominations for rising star students within the whole faculty.
The UBC APSC Rising Stars of 2015 are people passionate about their chosen field – architecture, landscape architecture, community and regional planning, engineering and nursing. They are individuals that inspire others by making meaningful contributions to the betterment of society.
In 2015, two of our CHBE students have been honoured with this recognition.
Hafiz Rahman is a PhD student who has served as a CHBE Graduate Club President, launched the Graduate Club Seminar Series and has been the recipient of numerous awards during his time at UBC: AMS Just Desserts Award 2013, Killam Graduate Teaching Assistant Award 2014, Graduate Student Leadership Award 2014, and Outstanding Future Alumnus Award 2015.
Negin Tousi is part of the graduating class of 2015 in Chemical and Biological Engineering. After a successful term as President of the CHBE Undergraduate Club she went on to serve as Vice President of External Affairs of the UBC Engineering Undergraduate Society.
Congratulations to both Negin and Hafiz on well-deserved recognition for their achievements to date. We wish them well in all their future endeavours.
