CHBE students hosting AIChE Northwest Pacific Conference 2015

UBC’s Chemical and Biological Engineering students are honoured to be hosting this year’s Pacific Northwest American Institute of Chemical Engineers’ Conference. On April 17-19 2015, over 75 students from five American universities will gather at UBC to compete in various competitions, present their research, participate in workshops, and network with fellow engineering students and academics.

The conference, Connect the Dots, will focus on awareness, empowerment, and sustainability – themes consistent across all engineering disciplines. By participating in student-run workshops, AIChE competitions, and hearing guest speakers, conference attendees will leave more aware of the world around them, inspired to make positive change and empowered with the tools to do so sustainably.
