University of Saskatchewan
Gage Sonntag is entering his 4th of chemical engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. He has served as the treasurer for the Chemical Engineering Students’ Society for the past two years, and was elected president for the upcoming year.
Having presented research at a previous CSChE conference, he’s made it a priority to facilitate student attendance over the past two years. With such a wide breadth of exposure he feels conferences like these suit any student’s interests, and play an important role in developing a student’s passion for their industry. Within the college, he also serves as VP Internal Affairs for the school’s chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers and sits on the Board of Director’s for the Saskatoon Engineering Students’ Society.
Sean Johnstone is in his final year of a degree in chemical and bioengineering at McMaster University. Johnstone describes his University experience as nothing short of spectacular. He has participated in many university extracurricular activities including the McMaster Solar Car Project as project manager, Faculty of Engineering student rep, and most recently, McMaster’s CSChE Student Chapter vice president. During his four years with the chemical engineering student club he played an integral role in initiating new student events and increasing student and faculty participation in those events. In his spare time, Johnstone studies as a classical singer and enjoys home brewing his own beer.
