For the second consecutive year, a group of UTC Engineering students achieved national recognition for their performance at the 2013 American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Chem-E Car Competition held in San Francisco on November 3rd.
For the second year in a row, the UTC student Chem-E Car team will compete on the national level. The team will travel to San Francisco, California for the competition sponsored by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).
An improved chemical car design from the UTC chemical engineering student team secured a ninth-place finish and the award for “Best Inherent Design for Safety” at the national American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) competition.
The Chem-E car a group of UTC students constructed may only be the size of a shoebox, but its small size didn’t keep the team from placing third overall at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) southern regional competition in Clemson, South Carolina. The team has qualified for a spot in the national competition, to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in October.
