What is AIChE?


The Missouri S&T American Institute of Chemical Engineers provides students with a chance to network with professionals. We host speakers from academia and chemical manufacturing companies. We also hold a corporate mixer the evening before each career fair.

Students network with the local St. Louis section of AIChE through trivia nights and plant tours. We attend regional and national student conferences where the Chem E Car and research presentation competitions take place.

Additionally, our recruitment committee provides department tours to prospective students interested in chemical engineering.


Until further notice, all general meetings will be held on Zoom. Due to COVID-19, in-person AIChE events are cancelled until further notice.
