2017 AIChE Annual Student Conference Undergraduate Research Forum
AIChE is now accepting submissions for the Undergraduate Research Forum at the AIChE 2017 Annual Student Conference in Minneapolis, MN for student members who are interested in presenting their work. The Undergraduate Research Forum will be held between 2 sessions on Sunday, October 29th and Monday, October 30th. Please let your students and classmates know about this opportunity.
This is a great chance for students who participated in the Regional Conference Paper Competition, but may not have won first place, to still have a chance to present at the Annual Meeting.
Submissions should be sent via this submission form no later than August 1. All questions regarding this forum should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
**Note that the Undergraduate Research Forum is not the same as the Paper/Poster Competition at the Annual Student Conference

Introducing AIChE Academy
AIChE is offering lectures and online courses for chemical engineers! Course topics include chemical processes, industrial trends, and safety. Many of these courses are free for undergraduate members. AIChE Academy is a great way to further your chemical engineering knowledge and would be a great way to spend your time over the summer if you currently don’t have an internship or if you have any free time on your hands. Visit AIChE Academy for more information!
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!
