About Us

    Who We Are

    We are the Central Florida Section of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. Our boundaries include the counties and cities of the State of Florida lying between latitudes 27°N and 29°N. 

    Our Mission

    The objectives of the Section are:

    • to advance the profession of chemical engineering and maintenance of high professional standards among its members;
    • to form closer professional and personal relations among members;
    • to further the aims and purposes of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers;
    • to promote cordial and helpful relations with the faculties and students of nearby institutions providing course in chemical engineering; and
    • to support excellence in education by encouraging interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in elementary, middle, and high school students.

     

    What We Do

    Each year we offer members a variety of activities including several dinner meetings, social events, and an annual conference. We also work in collaboration with local AIChE student sections and elementary, middle, and high schools within our boundaries to help promote the interest in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. 

    Dinner Meetings

    Dinner meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month September through November and January through April. Each meeting has a social beginning at 6:30 PM with dinner following at 7:15 PM. We hope you can join us throughout the year. 

    Social Events

    Our Section offers a Fall and Spring social event. In previous years, we have hosted BBQ picnics, murder mystery dinners, Publix Dairy Plant tours, Busch Gardens tours, and many more. Recently, we have also begun hosting Young Professional Social events to allow professional under 35 an opportunity to network. If you have an idea for a social, please contact socials@aiche-cf.org
