ChemE FamilEs

AIChE’s unique mentorship program ChemE FamilE aims to strengthen the UCSD ChemE community by pairing students with other ChemE’s outside of their graduating class. The FamiliE is organized into four houses, where each house has a FamilE Head. Big and Little siblings will be matched through personalized profiles. You must be a member in order to participate in our mentorship program. Sign up here to be a member!

Please fill out this form before October 24th if you are interested!

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.
