SAChE Student Design Competition for Safety in Design

Each year, chemical engineers from a designated company devise and judge a student contest problem that typifies a real, working, chemical engineering design situation. The problem's solution requires a wide range of skills in calculation and evaluation of both technical data and economic factors. The SAChE award is presented to teams and individuals from the AIChE Student Design Competition for designs that apply appropriate principles of chemical process safety.


One team design award (Jack Wehman Design Award) of $300 and one individual design award (Walter Howard Design Award) of $200 for the best applications of the principles of chemical process safety
