Student Organizations


American Institute of Chemical Engineers –  This is the premier professional society of the chemical engineering discipline.  The NMSU AICHE student chapter provides professional development opportunities to the student body, guides and educates members on matters important to their progress and success in the program too lengthy to list them all, and is heavily engaged in the administration and assessment of the Chemical Engineering program.

The organization is performing close to 1,000 hours of service to the university and surrounding community, as well as serving kettle corn to the campus at the rock-bottom cost of $2/bag.  The President of AICHE was named Outstanding Graduating Senior from the College of Engineering in the spring graduation of 2013 (Quintana), 2012 (Salazar), and 2011 (Wilson).

AICHE coordinates social events that include bowling, karaoke nights, picnics, senior banquet, the annual Dia de los Muertos party, the Feliz Navidad White Elephant, and the Interclass Olympics.  Check out more at the NMSU AICHE Facebook page.
