"How chemical engineering can be applied to solve world problems on a micro scale"
Congratulations to the University of California - Berkeley, Case Western Reserve and Missouri University of S&T, the first, second and third place winners respectively of the 3rd annual AIChE ACE4G Challenge. This competition is funded by the AIChE Foundation and organized by the Global Societal Impact, Student Chapters and International Committees and the Sustainable Energy Forum. The purpose is to encourage chemical engineering students to consider how chemical engineering know-how can be applied in an appropriate way on a small scale to improve the quality of life of communities in the developing world. AIChE student chapters are strongly encouraged to partner with organizations, such as Engineers Without Borders, with experience applying appropriate technology on micro scale projects in small technically unsophisticated communities. This annual challenge is open to all U.S. and international AIChE student chapters.
