Welcome to AIChE at UCSD

The UCSD Student Chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE at UCSD) aims to promote the professional development of chemical engineering majors at UCSD and to build community among its members through social activities, career-building events, and service opportunities. If you are an alumna/alumnus or company representative interested in speaking at one of our meetings, hosting an information session, or sponsoring a AIChE UCSD event, please contact aiche@ucsd.edu

More About Us

AIChE at UCSD is an organization that brings together undergraduate and graduate chemical engineering students and introduces them to employment and educational opportunities post-graduation

Each quarter, AIChE at UCSD invites industry representatives from a wide range of specialties (e.g. petroleum, alternative energy, biotechnology, nanotechnology, materials, semiconductor and consulting) to speak at our afternoon seminars, open to undergraduate and graduate students, which we host three to four times a quarter. At these seminars, attended by thirty to forty studenPlease fill out this form before October 24th if you are interested!ts, representatives will often speak about what their sector of industry does and explain the skill sets their engineers and scientists need, and finally frame all of this in the context of the chemistry and chemical engineering majors.


If the company is close by and allows it, we will also organize company tours for students to come see operations first-hand. Student feedback tells us that these seminars are invaluable in providing a clearer picture of what each company does as it applies to the skill sets they learn in class.
