Clubs are a great way to get involved with like-minded people, make friends, and build skills like leadership, teamwork, time management, and social networking.
CHBE Undergraduate Student Club
The Chemical and Biological Engineering Undergraduate Student Club (USC) aims to enhance the students’ experience during their time in the Department. Undergraduate students automatically become members of this club upon entering the Department. Its executive council addresses academic issues, coordinates graduation photos, organizes social events, and represents Chemical and Biological Engineering Undergraduate students to the Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS), Alma Mater Society (AMS), and the departments and the faculty of Applied Science. For more information and to contact any of the council executives please refer to their Facebook page.
