Under the Sister Chapter Program, a sisterhood is a formalized partnership between two Student Chapters from different countries. The Sister Chapter Program helps to connect Student Chapters globally, as well as to facilitate in the professional development of its student members by learning how to work with chemical engineering student peers from different cultural and geographic backgrounds. We have around 75+ student chapters experiencing the benefits of this program and still adding more sisterhoods.

The Sister Chapter Program is a rare opportunity to prepare Student Chapter members for a global industry.

With over 300 AIChE Student Chapters in over 40 countries, the program provides a rare opportunity to prepare Student Chapter members for a global industry. All Chapters that aim to foster the professional growth of its members are encouraged to join.
