Cleveland State University Chemical Engineering Seniors Win 2014 National AIChE Team Design Competition

Cleveland State University Chemical Engineering Seniors, Zakaria Benmerzouga, Jeremy Miller, and Andrew Zak, won the 2014 National AIChE Team Design Competition!

Each year, chemical engineers from a designated company devise and judge a student contest problem that typifies a real, working, chemical engineering design situation. The problem's solution requires a wide range of skills in calculation and evaluation of both technical data and economic factors.

More than 120+ Chemical Engineering Programs are invited annually to submit entries for a Process Design Competition. This year a team of CSU Seniors placed first.

Congratulations to Andrew, Jeremy, and Zak ! Their award includes a cash prize and award plaques for each member. Design Competition winners also will be recognized at the 2014 AIChE Annual Student Conference, Nov. 14-18, in Atlanta, Georgia. 

The award itself will be presented during the Student Awards Ceremony,

  • Monday, November 17 from 8:30-10:30 a.m.
