The AIChE Buffalo Student Chapter

The student chapter of UB CBE’s AIChE has a mission is to assist undergraduate students to prepare for the real world by fostering connections with future employers. They do so by presenting a speaker series where students can visit with and learn from UB CBE alums, and they can go on local company plant tours each month.

The AIChE student chapter also attends the national and regional AIChE conferences, competes in the Cheme-E car competition, and hosts social events to again connect students and colleagues, along with professional development workshops to ready participants for their future career.

Interested undergraduates can join the club by contacting:

President Robert Pettitt
Vice President William Kellog
