WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2015 at the University of California - San Diego, the program is the first of its kind and was conceived to serve both students and the local community.
The vision of AIChE Projects is to open the minds and hearts of engineers to the meaningful impacts that they can have, while providing a stimulating environment for students to grow, both as technical-minded professionals and ethical contributors to society.
The program currently directs five unique project teams in different stages of design implementation.
The AIChE Projects program promotes excellence in chemical engineering education and stimulates collaborative efforts among industry and professional societies by promoting team-oriented hands-on experiences for its students alongside local non-profit organizations and industry.
The program also advances the development and exchange of relevant knowledge by providing a hub for students to discuss and critique ideas, problem solve with one another in the building stage, and troubleshoot common problems that arise in the chemical engineering field.
AIChE Projects is whole-heartedly committed to diversity and inclusion within its projects and leadership teams, welcoming all majors regardless of their level of technical experience.
