AIChE Committees

AIChE has many different committees which serve many purposes and functions. The various committees curate information sessions, host social events, design flyers, volunteer at outreach events and so much more.

Internal Programs Committee is a group of AIChE students who come together to plan fun socials and professional development events. The goal of Internal Programs Committee is to connect students to one another and provide a relaxing environment to destress from classes. Highlight events include Week of Welcome, Painting Sessions, S’mores Socials, Game Nights, End of Semester BBQ and so much more! This committee is also responsible for Mentor-Mentee as well as Professional Development within the university such as Coffee with ChemE and Research Fair.

The External Programs Committee has been derived to connect our Chemical Engineering students with companies and graduate school programs. The officers in this committee reach out to recruiters, the HR department, and other employees to set up info sessions where they share insights on their company and what to expect if hired by them. With graduate schools, our research liaison contacts Chemical Engineering faculty at different top-tier universities. The graduate school info sessions help students learn about different graduate programs that are offered to PhD students. During our committee meetings, we collaborate on finding ways to benefit our general body.

The Treasurer Committee is in charge of approving funds for events each semester. If anything needs to be bought for social events, info sessions, general body meetings, etc., the Treasurer Committee makes sure we have the budget for it and order everything on time. One of the most important things we do, in the opinion of our members, is the free food we always have at our bi-weekly general body meetings!

The Marketing Committee is how the UF AIChE Chapter communicates and interacts with people, organizations, students, etc, both on and off the internet. We design colorful infographics to promote company information sessions, AIChE social events, and so much more. These flyers are then posted on our social media pages and shared by our members thereby increasing our reach. Another important function we serve is writing and designing our semesterly Newsletter, which has important updates about what we have done throughout the semester, interviews, and so much more. Each newsletter is the result of a collaborative effort and dedication of our marketing members under the direction of the Editor in Chief. Lastly, we also update and maintain this very website!

The UF AIChE Outreach Committee aims to offer enriching experiences outside of the affairs at the University of Florida. Over the course of a year, the committee is involved in several volunteering activities that focus on giving back to the community. Some of these events include performing cleanups in various locations in our local community, presenting educational material and experiments to K-12 students both in Alachua County and nationally, and fundraising for local nonprofits. The Outreach Committee also provides our members with the chance to learn about STEM and Chemical Engineering in different parts of the world through a partnership with our AIChE sister chapter. Our members are able to participate in virtual meetings and events with our sister chapter to discuss topics such as their future goals, experiences, and even hobbies.
