Interacting with Industry

The Chemical and Nuclear Engineering Programs work closely with an Industrial Advisory Board, which meets regularly to advise on matters relating to program modifications and assessment and external relations and development.

Professional Activities

Students have the opportunity to join the student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and/or the student chapter of the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry. Students in the Nuclear Engineering Option and others with an interest in the peaceful use of nuclear technologies have the opportunity to join the student chapter of the American Nuclear Society. Local chapters of the Chemical Engineering Honor Society, Omega Chi Epsilon, and the Nuclear Engineering Honor Society, Alpha Nu Sigma, are open to qualified students.

The Department of Chemical Engineering encourages students to take the Fundamentals of Engineering examination in the senior year as a first step toward professional registration.
