The UC Berkeley student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) has received a 2015 Outstanding Student Chapter Award. The Berkeley chapter is one of 16 AIChE student chapters to be honored out of a total of 231 student chapters nationally.

The award is presented annually to those student chapters that show an exceptional level of participation, enthusiasm, program quality, professionalism and involvement in their university and community. The students will receive a plaque at the AIChE National Student Meeting in early November.

Two Berkeley AIChE student members also won individual awards. Nasir Merchant received a Freshman Recognition Award and Tom Lin received the Othmer Sophomore Excellence Award. They both will receive free registration for the national student meeting and a travel credit.
