Meeting Details

Date & Time: Wednesdays, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: East Village 002

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.  Please visit the NU ChemE Car page for more information.

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 four AIChE and/or ChemE Car meetings. Special events count as two meetings and will be announced in advance.   For more information about all of NU AIChE's policies, please refer to our constitution, and our current bylaws.

The STEM committee was developed within the Northeastern AIChE chapter to promote entering a STEM field to younger students in the surrounding community. The program is designed to incorporate activities and events for elementary school through high school students. It is important for developing individuals to be constantly reminded of the opportunities available to them. Our area of study is constantly developing, requiring bright young minds to stimulate its growth and innovations. Within the 2020-2021 term, the committee’s focus lies within developing and trialing accessible and replicable K-12 STEM activity modules that supplement school curriculum.

Through the STEM Committee, AIChE members have:
• Volunteered for Engineering Explorations and the Engineering for Everyone Expo, events hosted by the Northeastern University Center for STEM Education
• Traveled to the Jamaica Plains Boston Public library to demo experiments in coordination with STEMout, a Northeastern University STEM club
• Created virtual curriculum that qualified for the national AIChE conference, enabling committee members to present curriculum to judges and classes of students
• Participated in Splash yearly academic outreach programs, leading students through an activity with chemical engineering connections

Meeting Details

Date & Time: Tuesdays, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: UO Lab (Mugar 100)

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.

General Scholarships

Breanden Beneschott Grant for Chemical Engineers

The award is named the Breanden Beneschott Grant for Chemical Engineers. It was created to support ambitious students who will use the rigors of a Chemical Engineering education to achieve great things in whichever career path they choose. Students do not have to work as Chemical Engineers to be eligible, and all GPAs will be considered.

Click here for more information about the Breanden Beneschott Grant .

Northeastern Research Funding

The Project-Based Exploration for the Advancement of Knowledge (PEAK) Experiences Awards are a progressively structured sequence of opportunities designed to support learners as they continue climbing to new heights of achievement in undergraduate research and creative endeavor throughout their Northeastern journeys.

From the beginner surveying the landscape with a Campfire Chat or establishing a Base Camp, to those gaining experience while making the Ascent and Building Bridges, to those reaching the Summit, Blazing new Trails, and Shouting Out their successes, the PEAK Experiences Awards offer something for everyone.
