We are proud to support the Undergraduate Process Safety Learning Initiative of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). In 2016, Trinseo donated $50,000 to the Initiative, which will directly support curriculum development at university chemical engineering programs, faculty training, and student instruction and enrichment.
It is not uncommon for chemical engineering graduates to enter the workforce without adequate exposure to process safety education. The goal of the initiative is to have 100 percent of graduating bachelor-degree chemical engineers in the U.S. prepared to enter the workforce with a working knowledge of process safety. Integrating process safety education into AIChE's global network of student members and university partnerships will ultimately help shape the profession and positively impact our industry for decades to come.
