About AIChE

Who We Are

The NCSU student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) is made up of chemical engineering students. It was chartered by the national organization in 1929 with the goals of fostering interest in chemical engineering and teaching students about the chemical engineering profession.


AIChE holds weekly dinners for members where corporate representative come to present the objectives of their company and inform students of employment, internship, and co-op openings. This is a great opportunity for companies to connect with students and collect resumes/offer interview sign-ups. Students can also network with industry professionals and learn about the many career paths available to chemical engineers. Many students find these sessions informative and important in solidifying their choice to major in chemical engineering. 


Students have the opportunity to attend regional and national AIChE Conferences. Attendees connect with other chemical engineering students from across the country while attending professional development workshops, industry panels, and information sessions. Students also apply their knowledge by competing in the ChemE Car, Jeopardy, and Poster competitions.

Company Tours

AIChE schedules tours for students interested in a behind-the-scenes look at how companies operate. Past tours have included Raleigh Brewing Company, Trophy Brewing Co., Biogen, and Novo Nordisk. 

Social and Outreach Events

Our chapter hosts several social events throughout the year intended to bring students together and facilitate connections. Events include welcome back bashes, field days, and much more!

The chapter also gives back through various outreach events such as offering tours, hosting information sessions, and volunteering in the community.
