The American Institute of Chemical Engineers is a national professional organization for chemical engineers. Since 1908, it has been one of the greatest resources for both the ChE major and the profession.
The University of Nevada maintains an active AIChE student chapter with students from all years and stages in the ChE curriculum.
Nevada AIChE is completely student-run: it elects its own student officers, plans its own events, and maintains its own budget.
Nevada AIChE strives to complement the globally oriented curriculum of Nevada's College of Engineering and the Chemical and Materials Engineering Department by:
The student chapter holds monthly meetings for all members. These meetings touch on a variety of topics, e.g. professional development, conference planning, and help with curriculum.
The Chem-E-Car team holds meetings that are scheduled throughout the semester by team members. These meetings are dedicated to the design and testing of our originally-designed, chemically-powered vehicle for regional and national competition.
Nevada AIChE's main event this semester is the Annual Student Conference, which takes place from November 1-4, 2013 in San Francisco, CA. This conference will involve the Chem-E-Car competition, paper/poster research presentations, development workshops, and a national career and graduate school fair.
AIChE also participates in Engineer's Week, a university-wide celebration of all things engineering. We collaborate with the college and the other clubs in a concerted effort to spark interest in engineering on campus.
We organize and offer tours of companies using large-scale chemical engineering processes, to educate members in real-world applications of their coursework and give them a taste of the possibilities in store for them as engineers. We have several of these tours in the works for the upcoming year.
Membership in AIChE is open to students in a chemical engineering major. To get involved with AIChE, stop by at one of our monthly meetings or ask a member about upcoming events.
