14th AIChE Midwest Regional Conference | AIChE

About the Midwest Regional Conference

Organized by the Chicago Local Section, the MRC provides an opportunity for engineers and scientists in the region and beyond to learn about new technologies and network with others in the field. A particular objective of the conference is to build technical relationships between industrial practitioners and researchers in the governmental and academic spheres. 

The conference is proud to feature a High School Outreach Program, where Chicago-area high school students will become acquainted with the various facets of the chemical engineering profession. The virtual outreach program features Kimberly D. Moore (KDM Engineering) as keynote speaker and includes a virtual networking session where students can interact with practicing engineers. 

On behalf of the conference planning committee, we welcome you to the 14th Annual AIChE Midwest Regional Conference and hope you will take advantage of all the opportunities it has to offer!
