Department of Chemical Engineering
AIChE – American Institute of Chemical Engineers
Join AIChE and get exposure to a wide variety of ChemE companies and network with classmates and faculty! They host luncheons, run our mentorship program, arrange corporate informational sessions, IM sports teams, plant tours and social events.
ChE Car – ChE design team
The ChemE Car competition sponsored by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) requires the development of a shoe-box sized car designed and calibrated to run for a pre-determined distance and to carry a certain amount of weight. The car must be fueled by a chemical reaction and stopped by a chemical reaction.
OXE – Omega Chi Epsilon
ChE Honor Society
You are eligible to join the organization once you have completed your first three ChE courses with high academic standing. Apart from attending intimate info sessions with a wide variety of companies, OXE members participate in service events, social events, and tutoring sessions open to all ChE students.
AXE – Alpha Chi Sigma
Co-Ed Professional Chemistry Fraternity
Our activities include: weekly tutoring, coaching a Science Olympiad team at Angell Elementary, introducing basic science to elementary school children and chemistry to high school students, hosting the Bartell Lectureship series, community outreach events (Habitat for Humanity, Food Gatherers, Relay for Life, etc.), and many social events, open and closed, often times at our fraternity house, but also other locations, like for our camping trip, our annual LSA vs. COE winter football game, and so on.
Chemical Engineering Graduates Society (ChEGS)
This group plans social, outreach, and professional development opportunities for chemical engineering graduate students and faculty.
FISA – Food Industry Student Association
Exposure to the food and beverage industry
The Food Industry Student Association (FISA) is a student-run campus organization that provides exposure to the food and beverage industry, including but not limited to agriculture, research and development, bioprocessing, manufacturing, bottling and packaging, global supply, regulatory compliance, and sustainability! This exposure is delivered through design projects, plant tours, corporate sessions, informational meetings, social events, and volunteering opportunities.

MPEDD – Michigan Process Equipment & Demonstration
MPEDD is a multidisciplinary engineering organization. We aim to expand on the theoretical knowledge base of engineers at the University with real, hands-on experience, and we aim to educate future engineers about what engineers really do. To do this, we will be designing and building equipment used in industrial processes and demonstrating them to interested undergraduate classrooms and high school students. Industry representatives will also visit to give presentations about their process(es) at their company, and MPEDD will also be lecturing on various topics to strengthen theoretical knowledge of the group members.
