What is AIChE?

The American Institute of Chemical Engineers is a professional organization representing nearly 60,000 chemical engineers. AIChE encourages the activities of student chapters at academic departments, and works to integrate the student members into the professional world. At MIT, the AIChE student chapter provides a voice for undergraduates in department affairs, encourages the professional development of students, and provides seminars concerning graduate school application, job hunting, and life in industry. The chapter also organizes study breaks and student-faculty events.
