Undergraduate Student Organizations

Mines American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Chapter

The Chemical and Biological Engineering Department is a proud supporter of the AIChE chapter at Mines. The AIChE group is consistently looking for ways to have current CBE undergraduate students connect with companies and alumni.  AIChE’s most notable events include their Lunch and Learn on Fridays and bi-annual Rotational Dinner. If you are interested in supporting the AIChE group or joining one of their events, please reach out to cbe@mines.edu.

The group was chartered in 1957 and is currently advised by Assistant Professor Kevin Cash and Professor John Jechura.

Rotational Dinner & Networking

The AIChE Rotational Dinner is an event held bi-annually and usually during the weekend before Career Fair.  The event sees representatives from many companies interested in hiring Mines Chemical Engineering graduates networking with students.  The event is generally held at Table Mountain Inn and involves a dinner.  The main event allows students to rotate around different tables to connect with different companies they may be interested in working for in the future.

If your company is interested in attending the rotational dinner and/or networking with our students, please reach out to cbe@mines.edu.  

Lunch and Learn

Lunch and Learn is an event held each Friday during the academic year where companies visit and provide information to potential employees about what a career in their organization would look like. The talk is usually accompanied by a lunch sponsored by the visiting company.

If your company would like to learn more about taking part in a Lunch and Learn, please reach out to cbe@mines.edu.

Other Student Groups

Society of Women Engineers (SWE)

Although a campus organization, the department would like to show our support for the female representation at Mines and in the department. We are excited to see our female population at Mines continue to grow each year and institutions like SWE help foster an environment were females feel welcome in STEM fields.
