MSU produces chemical engineers who are active in American Institute of Chemical Engineers competitions and networking events. 

Two former Michigan State University College of Engineering students have been recognized with awards from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

Lucas Keller and Josh Storer both entered their individual projects into AIChE's 2022 Student Design Competition.

Keller received the A. McLaren White Award (first prize) for his entry in the competition and Storer won the second place A.E. Marshall Award. 

The AIChE is now recognizing 2022 winners of the competition because of delays in the scoring process.

Winners for the 2023 competition have been determined, but there were no MSU students among them, said Alyssa Block, the AIChE's member associate from student programs.

About AIChE

AIChE is a professional society of more than 60,000 members in more than 110 countries.

Its members work in corporations, universities and government using their knowledge of chemical processes to develop products that benefit society.

MSU has a very active student chapter of AIChE. Most undergraduate chemical engineering students are members.

MSU's chapter has won outstanding chapter awards from the National AIChE, and student members have been some of the most successful in the country in winning the AIChE's Student Design Competition.
