Use creativity and imagination to participate in the AIChE Global Undergraduate Student Video Competition. Student teams will have a chance to create a 2-5 minute video that explains and inspires high school students and communities to learn more about chemical engineers and what they do. Each video will compete to win a judges choice award or a team choice award. The winners of each year’s competition will be announced at the Annual Student Conference.
The global reach of the competition will allow the exchange of relevant knowledge between diverse communities and will also enable the exchange of ideas on adaptation of process technology in different countries. This will highlight the impact of concerned technologies on societies around the globe.
Thank you to the AIChE Foundation for providing financial support for this competition!
