We are the Northeastern University student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).  NU AIChE serves to connect chemical engineering students with Northeastern University faculty and staff, professional engineers, potential employers, Northeastern  University chemical engineering alumni, and each other. We work to promote excellence and quality-of-life in the chemical engineering department through professional networking events, educational activities, and social events and outings. For more information on these events, check out our News and Upcoming Events page.

We also host NU ChemE Car, a group which competes in a national competition to build and operate a chemically powered vehicle.  For more information about NU ChemE Car, you can go to there page here.

NU AIChE uses an active member policy to determine who can vote in executive board elections.  To be considered an active member, all you need to do is attend three meetings and one of our events per semester.  For more information about all of NU AIChE's policies, please refer to our constitution here, and our current bylaws here.

ChemE Car

Our team at ChemE Car Nationals

Meeting Details

Date & Time: Tuesdays, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Location: UO Lab (Mugar 100MZ1)

ChemE Car is a sub-group of AIChE that designs and builds a miniature car powered and controlled by chemical reactions. We offer students the opportunity to apply practical engineering skills in a design project that culminates in a competition with other schools around the nation. Throughout the year, the ChemE Car team explores the design process from start to finish including: initial research of chemical reactions, development and scale-up of those reactions, and implementation into a final design.

ChemE Car is primarily composed of Chemical Engineering majors, but there are ample opportunities for all types of engineering and STEM majors to contribute.  The team meets once a week during the fall and spring semesters; however, weekly attendance is not mandatory.

If you are interested in learning more or becoming part of the ChemE Car team, please feel free to subscribe to our mailing list, attend a meeting, or email either of our student captains.
