It has been a great first month here with UVA AICHE! We kicked off the year with our Fall General Body Meeting on September 7, which included presentations by new faculty and UVA chemical engineering organizations. We also welcomed our new second year class by starting our mentorship program, and electing three second year class representatives.
Most recently, the AICHE Alumni and Corporate Relations Committee organized a Chemical Engineering Fall Networking Night, held on September 20. The event was attended by fourteen companies spanning across industries such as chemical, consulting, pharmaceutical, and renewable energy. Students of all years came to the event to learn more about the companies and their opportunities, as well as make connections with company representatives.
We look forward to our upcoming events, which include a student-led internship panel and a tour of DuPont’s Kevlar production facility.
