What is the Chem-E Car?
In short, it’s an engineering competition sponsored by AICHE. For many of our undergraduates, it’s a chance to learn valuable engineering and team working skills, while having a good time getting to know their peers and professors.

In this competition, teams from various universities design and construct chemically powered vehicles. These vehicles must operate safely, and be able to carry a certain weight in cargo some set distance, using only a chemical reaction as a stopping mechanism. Winning vehicles are those that safely carry their cargo the prescribed distance. The top three cars in the AICHE regional competition may then go on to compete in the nationals.

How to Get Involved
To get involved, reach out to our club Advisor Professor Anthony Butterfield at tony@chemeng.utah.edu or request to join the following Canvas course for ChemE Car. You can also find us at our weekly meetings in the Meldrum Innovation Lab MEB 1292.

How to Get Involved
Students can become involved with Chemical Engineering Outreach by ‘applying’ for membership on our website at outreach.che.utah.edu. From here, a program representative will reach out and personally how to get involved.

The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) is one of the largest and fastest growing educational and scientific multimodal professional transportation organizations in the world. As a chapter of the national ITE group, we help students get involved in transportation projects and become acquainted with the professional transportation employment. We have activities that further the knowledge of transportation engineering, fund raisers, and service projects that help students become familiar with the transportation profession. We are very active, attend nationwide conferences and enthusiastically participate in many ITE events. Student members have access to an abundance of information and resources to help them improve their understanding and status as an engineer. ITE helps students grow as a professional, advance in their individual field of endeavor, and make a positive contribution to society. Our chapter has great relationships with the people in the industry and professional ITE chapters. We bring guest speakers and go to field trips. We organize student seminars, where each of us has an opportunity to present and discuss his/her work. We have great faculty advisors who put a lot of time and effort in supporting our chapter.

The main purpose of the club is to research, discuss and share ideas in the field of water resources and water quality. Students may join IWR through our Campus Connect website and/or sending an email to iwr.uofu@gmail.com to get on our event email list.
