young minds have innovative ideas and possess creative attitude.
They should be encouraged to translate these ideas to reality.
The Council of the Institute rightly thought to open Students'
Chapters of IIChE in the different Chemical Engineering departments
of our country. Students automatically become members of the
Chapters and they are guided by the faculty members of the
departments and the concerned regional centre. Students can
utilize this platform for their benefit through various activities.
Active Students' Chapters have been organising brain storming
sessions, quiz competition, debates, seminar/workshop as well
as presentation of innovative ideas through research papers.
As the Annual Chemical Engineering Congress of IIChE is unable
to accommodate large number of students, a Students' Congress
viz., 'Schemcon' is separately held every year in some part
of our country, when graduate and post graduate students participate
in large numbers and present their research findings before
experts in the fields. This annual student meet has become
Our aim is to attract bright young generation to serve in
the Chemical Engineering field and help the nation to meet
the new challenges of the Industry.
