This Week's Meeting: John Ellersick Talk!
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
News & Upcoming Events
Congrats to NU AIChE for being named an Outstanding Student Chapter by the national association for the 2017-2018 school year. Thank you to all of our hardworking and dedicated AIChE members for making it happen. You can read more about this incredible accomplishment here.
Congrats to our E-Board members who attended and presented at the AIChE National Student Conference recently in Pittsburgh!

The COE Jamboree was a college-wide activities fair hosted by NU
AIChE. COE student groups gathered together to host games and
activities, eat, and mingle with fellow engineers. This
community-building event was a huge success and NU AIChE hopes
to make it an annual tradition.
Our annual spring Co-op Mixer is an NU AIChE tradition. We
invite co-op employers to come table and recruit students for
the next co-op cycle, while students are encouraged to come
network and learn about potential employers. Employers that have
attended in the past are Alexion, HH Technologies, TEL, and
Professor Research Expo
The Professor Research Expo gave professors a chance to
introduce students to the research they are doing on campus.
Topics included reaction modeling, material science, and carbon
ChemE Town Hall
Our semi-annual town hall gives the chemical engineering student
body a chance to give feedback to the department on their
experience during the year. A representative from the department
will speak about department updates and then students are
encouraged to share their feedback with the department, so that
any issues, concerns, or suggestions can be addressed in the
Each year, the Boston AIChE chapter invites representatives from
the Boston-area student chapters to attend a professional AIChE
meeting. The meeting includes dinner with chemical engineering
professionals working in the Boston-area, a presentation from a
Boston AIChE guest speaker, and an awards ceremony for student
Co-op Career Fair with BMES
We collaborate with BMES for the annual fall Co-op Career Fair
to ensure that students in both chemical engineering and
bioengineering have the chance to network with companies that
may offer positions appropriate to both majors. We had over 15
companies in attendance who were interested in hiring chemical
engineers or bioengineers, giving students a chance to explore
job opportunities in both fields.
The ChemE Carnival sponsored by NU AIChE offered chemical
engineering students and faculty a chance to mingle, play
carnival games, win prizes, and have some fun before the
stresses of finals hit.
Employer Info Sessions
NU AIChE hosts many presentations from co-op employers each
semester, including companies like PulMatrix, Amgen, and PM
Group. Companies speak about their industry, company, and
opportunities for co-op positions, and students have a chance to
network with employers.
Welcome Back BBQ
Each year, the Chemical Engineering department partners with
AIChE to host a Welcome Back BBQ during the first week of fall
classes. Students are encouraged to come take a break from class
and mingle with other chemical engineering students and staff
while enjoying some BBQ.

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
