Mid-Michigan AIChE...Serving Chemical Engineers that Serve the World

Mid-Michigan is home to over 450 enthusiastic members of AIChE practicing chemical engineering in the Tri-Cities area of Michigan.  Most of us are employees or retirees of The Dow Chemical Company, heritage Dow Corning Corporation, Hemlock Semiconductor Corporation and others. 


To provide opportunities to continuously develop our members professionally while working with the community to improve the understanding of science and engineering and their impact on society.


  • Ensure a self-perpetuating AIChE college scholarship fund.
  • Develop a new primary fundraiser to ensure viability of the section.
  • Increase membership attendance at programs 20%.
  • Contact any officer for more information about our section!

In 1983 the National AIChE marked 75 years of service to our profession. To mark this milestone, the leaders of the Mid-Michigan Section, Gus L. Constan and Fred C. Justice, created a history of the contributions Mid-Michigan Chemical Engineers made in the early days of AIChE as well as the founding (in 1952) of our Local Section. They also prepared an overview of our section’s accomplishments.
