Young Professionals Community

Young Professional (YP) members are a vital and active group of AIChE members.  AIChE Young Professionals are:

  • Under the age of 35 and have graduated from an undergraduate institution,
  • Those new to the working world,
  • Masters or PhD students,
  • Those looking for a career in chemical engineering post-graduation, and
  • Those who have been working for a few years and starting to advance in their careers.

The Young Professionals Committee (YPC) works to increase participation among Young Professionals in AIChE benefits, services and volunteer opportunities.  The committee

  • Serves as an intermediary between undergraduate students moving into the next phase of their professional or academic careers,
  • Creates technical and social programming for YP's at AIChE conferences,
  • Provides leadership opportunities for YP members to develop new initiatives within AIChE,
  • Supports sub-sections of local sections that hold events especially geared toward YP's,
  • Supports and vocalizes the needs of YP's within the Institute, and
  • Helps define the future of AIChE and the chemical engineering profession.
