Beyond professional development, our technical projects provide a collaborative space for learning vital engineering skills not taught in the classroom. In the National Chem-E-Car Competition, students create a chemically powered car designed to travel a certain distance. Last year, AIChE started the Formulations Project, where participants formulate and characterize lotions, soaps, and balms. We are kickstarting a Kombucha Project this winter for students to gain experience in controlling the brewing of nonalcoholic beverages. We welcome company engagement with our technical workshops to enhance our undergraduate project experiences.
Please contact Allen Loomis (a_k_loomis [at] ucsb.edu) if you have any general questions about joining one of our projects, project funding, or interest in running a session to supplement our current lineup.
