The American Institute of Chemical Engineers is a professional organization representing nearly 60,000 chemical engineers. AIChE encourages the activities of student chapters at academic departments, and works to integrate the student members into the professional world.

At MIT, the AIChE student chapter provides a voice for undergraduates in department affairs, encourages the professional development of students, and provides seminars concerning graduate school application, job hunting, and life in industry. The chapter also organizes study breaks and student-faculty get-togethers.

The Cambridge-MIT Junior Year Exchange Program (CME)

Juniors in Chemical Engineering have the opportunity to spend Junior Year abroad, studying at Cambridge University in England. Cambridge is one of the oldest and most elite of English universities, and the Chemical Engineering Department ranks as one of the best in Europe. Studying there offers a unique cultural experience, as well as exposure to a very different style of engineering education. See the CME page for more information.
