LOCAL STUDENTS REPRESENT SDSM& T AT NATIONAL CONFERENCE
Erin Ernst, Jason Herr, and Brooks Pettit of Aberdeen were three of 16 students who represented the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers ( AIChE) National Conference in Dallas, Texas October 31 – November 1, 1999. Ernst, Herr, and Pettit are chemical engineering majors at Tech.
The National AIChE Conference brings together over 1,000 undergraduates from the student chapters of AIChE at over 100 universities nationwide. Participants have an opportunity to make new friends and networking contacts that may help them achieve future goals.
“ We hope the students that are attending will be able to bring ideas back to SD Tech to improve our AIChE Student Chapter, and ultimately encourage more active involvement by their classmates,” said Dr. David Dixon, AIChE student advisor, and Associate Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. “ The conference allows the students to gain new ideas on how to make our local chapter better, network with other ChE students from across the United States, and expose students to the national AIChE organization.”
AIChE Student Chapters and Clubs help bring chemical engineering out of the classroom. Members participate in local, regional and national activities that provide opportunities for professional growth, motivation, recognition, networking, and fun. Thousands of undergraduate students participate in their local chapter and club activities at 165 chemical engineering schools nationwide.
