Student Organizations

Chemical engineering students benefit from opportunities to join active and diverse student organizations.

The CBE department hosts a student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineering (AIChE) and the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES).  The department office can provide interested students with contact information for each society.  The organizations publish meeting information through the department listserv and posters; new members  are always welcome to attend.
