about US

The Texas A&M University Student Chapter of AIChE is dedicated to providing its members with experiences beyond the usual classroom education. As a professional society, we arrange opportunities for students to build a network of contacts in academia and in industry and to see the application of a Chemical Engineering degree in industry through plant trips.

As a student organization, we help develop leadership skills and give students the chance to improve their teamwork skills.

We are very proud of our college's curriculum and our professors. We also take great pride in our chapter. The great generosity of our sponsors has allowed us to fulfill many of our goals. Our chapter looks forward to the opportunity to improve on past accomplishments. With great people as officers along with superb industry cooperation, the 2018-2019 school year looks to be a great one.

General Meetings

General meetings are a great way to learn about companies. These company sponsored meetings give students an opportunity to learn about what goes on in the industry. Meetings include dinner and a presentation from the company. We bring in representatives to talk about a variety of topics, from engineering problems to possible future career fields.

Meetings are held every other Wednesday in JEB 106 at 7:30 PM. Typically lasts between 1-2 Hours.

Networking Event

Get to know the representatives! Before every meeting, we will hold a networking event. This is a casual opportunity to get to know company representatives. These are come and go events. Feel free to come in, chat, and network with company recruiters while enjoying some snacks.

Networking events are typically held in JEB 108 or 104 right before a general meeting. Typically lasts about 30 minutes.

Lunch and Learns are similar to smaller meetings. We bring in company representatives to give a small 30-45 minute presentation over lunch. Lunch and Learns typically have 10-15 people so they are a fantastic way to meet the representatives. We try to schedule 2 of these per day to avoid class conflicts.

Dinner and learns are the same thing! They occur during dinner. Come out, have a meal, and talk to company representatives.

The AIChE Sophomore Retreat is a fun-filled weekend event where students can meet friends and industry professionals. Our goal is to empower all new upper-level students academically, socially, and professionally through a fun, motivational, and memorable overnight retreat. Once the retreat is over, the students will have learned more about chemical engineering through company presentations and will have made new friends that will be in their sophomore classes the following semester.
