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.

The Chemical Engineering Outreach program is dedicated to spreading awareness and invigorating interest in STEM fields.

The Institute of Nuclear Material Management (INMM) Student Chapter encompasses a unique blend of technical, political and social sciences. The advent of the nuclear age at end of World War II opened the door to a new energy source, but also demonstrated its devastatingly destructive power. The benefits of commercial nuclear power are great and can be realized without risk of nuclear weapons proliferating into the wrong hands, but this requires responsible and innovative methods to monitor and manage nuclear materials and activities. These activities range from mining, enrichment, fabrication, reprocessing (recycling) and storage of nuclear material. The student chapter is a place to learn the most recent information about nuclear material stewardship and network with other students and industry professionals. The Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) is an international professional society dedicated to development and promulgation of practices for the safe, secure and effective stewardship of nuclear materials through the advancement of scientific knowledge, technical skills, policy dialogue, and enhancement of professional capabilities. Nuclear materials management involves the production, use, storage, transport, handling, protection, accounting and other essential aspects involved with the fundamental elements of the civilian nuclear fuel cycle, most notably, uranium and plutonium.
