Process Engineer Perspective Talks (PEP Talks)

AIChE is launching a new series of virtual meetings for process engineers to learn from and get to know one another. Called Process Engineer Perspective Talks, or, PEP Talks, this series is completely free to attend and will feature presentations by process engineers on topics of relevance to other process engineers, followed by discussion.

Topics

Topics will include the presenter’s career journey, skills needed in the plant operations (e.g., tuning a controller, understanding ways to heat trace lines) that may not be readily apparent, but are needed across industries, as well as skills unique to a particular industry. 

Why PEP talks?

The motivation for these talks came out of focus groups held by AIChE last year, where a need was identified by this important community of process engineers, and especially early career engineers, to learn and understand the applications of their undergraduate degree to the operations in the process industries, such as energy, petrochemicals, food, metals, pharmaceuticals, and bioprocessing, to name a few.

Who can attend?

PEP Talks are open and free to process engineers wanting to engage with other process engineers. The talks will take place virtually through Zoom on the second Thursday of every month from 12pm to 1pm ET starting in March. The first PEP Talks presenter will be Scott Love, founder of the AIChE Engage Community of Process Engineers.
