AIChE’s Regional Student Conference is an annual event aimed at engineering students from colleges and universities across the Pacific Northwest Region. CHBE hosted the event on Feb. 28 – March 1, 2009. The goal of this event was to provide an opportunity for serious-minded students to come together to share their technical knowledge, compare notes on their university experiences and plans for the future, and meet with industry professionals – this year proved to be a great success! The highlights of this conference consist of two main events: The Regional Student Paper Competition and the Regional Chem-E-Car Competition. Congratulations to Katie Bruce from CHBE who came in 3rd place for the Regional Student Paper Competition!!
Winners from both events will now travel to AIChE’s Annual meeting which will be held in Nashville to compete against the first place winners in AIChE’s eight other regions for the top national prize ….the CHBE Chem-E Car team is a wildcard for this completion…stay tuned to see if they make it!
