Welcome to the Student Chapter of AIChE at UC Irvine!

ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS: Our mentorship program is now open! If you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentee, fill out a form at Programs>AIChE Mentorship.

We are currently looking for a freshman representative. If you are interested, fill out a form at Programs>Freshman Representative.

Friday, 10/31/14
Time: 1:30PM – 3:30PM; carpool will leave at 1PM sharp
Location: Fountain Valley; rides provided

UCI AIChE will be touring Orange County Sanitation District to see how sewage water is being processed at this facility. The OCSD plant at Fountain Valley makes good use of nature along with professional engineering skills to minimize the cost and maximize the benefit to the public. This is the first part of the two part facility where water is being recycled and converted to drinkable water (at Orange County Water District, which we will also tour). If you are interested, please sign up here with your information, and we will provide more information about the tour as well as the car pooling situation later! Last day to sign up is Monday October 27th, 2014 at 11:59PM.

Internship Exploring Session
Monday, 11/03/14
Time: 6PM
Location: DBH 1300

Want to know more about the various industries that chemical engineers can work in? Come out to our Internship Exploring Session where we have representatives from the three main fields of chemical engineering to speak to us. The three fields are: environmental, biotechnology, and oil & gas. We will have current students and past alumni speak with us about their experience at their internships, how they went about securing that first internship, as well as any other questions you may have.

Chevron Tour
Saturday, 11/08/14
Time: 11AM – 3PM (latest); carpool will leave around 9:30AM
Location: El Segundo (50 minute drive); rides provided

If you are interested in working in the oil & gas industry, make sure you come out to our tour at Chevron! Chevron is having a community tour day where we get to tour around the facility and ask our guide any questions we have about the refinery or about refining in general. There will be only 20 spots for this tour, so priorities will be given to those who signed up during the first general meeting and have paid to become an official UCI AIChE member.
