Mission Statement

As officers of the student chapter of AIChE at the University of Pittsburgh, it is our goal to increase chapter recognition both locally and nationally, increase student membership and activity, promote student-faculty interaction, and prepare students for important decisions concerning postgraduate opportunities.

Founded in 1908, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) is a nonprofit organization providing leadership to the chemical engineering profession. Representing 57,000 members in industry, academia, and government, AIChE provides forums to advance the theory and practice of the profession, upholds high professional standards and ethics, and supports excellence in education. Institute members range from undergraduate students, to entry-level engineers, to chief executive officers of major corporations.
