About the organising Committee

Frank Morton, but not as you know it…

Welcome to Frank Morton 2021 brought to you by the University of Bradford. Frank Morton is an annual Sporting competition between chemical engineering departments from UK and Irish Universities.

However, With the uncertainty with covid-19, the event was hosted virtually on this platform. In 2021, the event was extra special with lots of interactive online games, activities and sporting challenges where participants had a chance to win exclusive prizes ranging from gift cards from various online retailers to exclusive prizes to be revealed worth up to £500.

Frank Morton 2021 serves as a unique experience for students to make friends, network with employers and engage in healthy competition, further career prospects, and even get a mentor.

With an added focus on careers for the event, there was a range of exclusive webinars and talks which were presented by our Industrial Sponsors and IChemE.
