Our student org spotlight is on: The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE)! AIChE is a professional organization for students interested in a future related to chemical engineering. National AIChE is the world’s leading organization for ChemE professionals both in established industries and emerging areas from Petroleum to nanobiotechnology. As a chapter at USC, we host events that promote members to not only develop close relationships with other students and faculty but also with industry representatives.
“AIChE helped me prepare my resume!” –Frankie
“It’s great being part of the mentorship program where I get to meet students in other years” –Lyssa
The chemical engineers have bonded together and taken on a hike through Runyon Canyon Park, the Hollywood sign and bowling in downtown LA. On the other side, they’ve also met with industry reps from known companies like Abbott. In fact, in just the next week, AIChE will be touring WhiteWave Foods who bring consumers brands like Silk soy milk and Land O Lakes butter (to name just a few). Indeed, food is just one of the motley of job opportunities available for ChemE’s!
