AIChE and Innovation in Chemical Engineering

Around the world, chemical engineers work on the biggest canvas of all, creating innovative solutions to some of the largest problems facing humanity.

In this short film titled “Creative Types,” which premiered at the 2016 AIChE Gala recognizing companies and their leaders for distinguished achievements in innovation, AIChE celebrates the creative spirit in chemical engineers that allows them to create innovative solutions to make life better.

The gala also celebrated the innovative work of biotechnology pioneer Robert S. Langer, who received the 2015 Hoover Medal, a prize sponsored by U.S. engineering societies and given to an engineer whose professional achievements and personal endeavors have advanced the well-being of humankind. Langer, the David H. Koch Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is renowned for his groundbreaking accomplishments in drug delivery and tissue engineering for regenerative medicine.
