I hope you'll join in to the many educational, networking, and enjoyable activities of the East Tennessee Section of AIChE.
The East Tennessee Section has contributed to the profession of chemical engineering for six decades. Our area is in the extreme eastern part of the state near the border with Virginia and North Carolina. As discussed in the local section history, our section was founded and is largely driven by employees of Eastman Chemical Company, which is the 9th largest chemical company in the U.S. and has over 500 chemical engineers at its headquarters in Kingsport, Tennessee. However, many of our members work for other local employers as well including Nuclear Fuel Services (NFS) in Elizabethton, Tennessee and BAE Systems in Kingsport.
Our section has monthly programs from September through May. Most of these are lunchtime meetings held in the Eastman Research Laboratories, but there are occasional plant tours and night meetings as well. The local section offers a review course for the professional engineer’s exam and sponsors continuing education classes as well. The history of these events is documented by our local section newsletter which is published monthly from September to May.
