The Young Professionals group of the South Texas Section of AIChE (STS-AIChE YP) is a group of recent graduates in Chemical Engineering and related fields that participate in social, technical and outreach events. Our goals are to:
- Bridge the gap between recent graduates and experienced professionals
- Plan relevant events throughout the year
- Increase membership, measured by participation in meetings and events
This Young Professionals group was formed in 2002, headed by Wendy Young, and has worked diligently to bridge the gap between learning and leading in the Chemical Engineering industry. Educational events sponsored by STS-AIChE YP range from college visits, informing future young professionals about opportunities to stay involved after graduation, to technical sessions, featuring topics specifically geared to the needs of young professionals.
While learning is important, STS-AIChE YP also recognizes the need for social interaction. STS-AIChE YP hosts a number of happy hours, field trips, picnics, and a variety of other activities available in the Greater Houston Area.
