Our Mission

Our Berkeley Student chapter has one simple goal: to make the life of a Berkeley Chemical Engineer better. Want to know who the best professors are, how to find an internship, or what student organizations you can join? AIChE can help. No matter what your interests are, AIChE provides the resources you need to succeed as a chemical engineer at Berkeley. We are a student group acting independently of the University of California. We take full responsibility for our organization and this Web site


We host info-sessions with companies like Dow, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, Valero, Genencor, Clorox, Proctor and Gamble, LifeTechnologies . . . just to name a few.
