Congratulations to the 2017-2018 E Board and thank you to all who participated in the election.
One of our two big events for the start of the semester are the implementation of our tutoring program for ChE 120 Fundamentals and ChE 226 Thermodynamics I. These sessions will run semester long and are already in progress, so check out the tutoring Flyer for more information. The second is our annual beer brewing competition. Every year AIChe and non AIChe members alike can participate in our brewing competition, and this year we will hold it again! More information can be found in the competitions page of our website, and be sure to bring your completed forms to the chapter meeting on the 7th as brewing kits will be given out on a first come first serve basis.
For new students (and others who aren't aware), UMass AIChE is the principal social group for chemical engineering undergrads at UMass Amherst. We are committed to preparing our members for their professional careers, while connecting and collaborating with peers.
Annual Student Meeting in San Francisco:
The Umass AIChe trip to the annual national AIChe trip was a success this fall and we will have news and updates from that experience at our upcoming chapter meeting!
Stay tuned for further updates on other events like the scavenger hunt and the annual Monkey Bar Dance - like our Facebook page and check your school email!
ExxonMobil Sponsors UMass ChemE Car Team
ExxonMobil has made a generous monetary contribution to our chapter, for which we are very thankful! The funds provided to us by ExxonMobil and Mr. Kevin Ferreira will be used for the construction of our ChemE Car, a self-propelled model car that, driven by a chemical reaction alone, will travel a given distance while carrying a payload on the day of competition. This funding will help to cover the cost of materials and tools necessary to construct our vehicle, such as the 3D printer that has allowed the team to produce optimal structural pieces for the chassis and reaction chamber.
The remainder of this gracious gift will be used to host the 2016 Northeast Regional Student Conference right here at UMass Amherst. We look forward to sharing an amazing conference with you in April 2016.
Thank you, ExxonMobil and Kevin Ferreira, for your generous donation!
