Chem-E-Car is Ryerson's first and only Chemical Engineering focused student design group! The mission is to engage students in designing and constructing a car powered by a chemical energy source, that will safely carry a specific load over a given distance and stop. The competition, which involves multiple regional competitions and final competition at the Annual Student Conference, increases awareness of the chemical engineering discipline among the public, industry leaders, educators, and other students.



The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) is a professional organization representing over 60,000 chemical engineers from over 110 countries around the globe. AIChE provides a wide range of resources (dedicated co-op job postings, engineering databases, scholarships, competitions and much more) for you – whether you’re planning for a career in core process industries or newer, cutting-edge emerging areas.
