From November 14th to November 17th, members of the AIChE at UVA chapter attended the 2014 AIChE Annual Student Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference consisted of panels discussing current chemical engineering topics, the Chem-E car competition, Jeopardy, a recruitment fair, and several networking opportunities. UVA students received awards commending their successes in chemical engineering and competed in the poster competition. Outside of the conference, students were able to enjoy Atlanta and visit the World of Coca-Cola as well as the Georgia Aquarium.
Additionally, the student chapter at UVA coordinated with two other student chapters from across the nation to give a presentation on “Getting the Most out of Your Student Chapter.” The presentation was a great success, as a variety of other student chapters attended, and many were interested in the unique activities we host throughout the year.
