In 2013, the Chemical Engineering Graduate Student Association, ChEGSA, was successfully established and the first ChEGSA Research Symposium was hosted with very positive feedback from all attendees. Following this legacy, the current ChEGSA leadership team is committed to surpass past accomplishments and introduce new avenues for its members.
We are an organization with a mission to enhance our graduate students’ social and professional competence. As a professional organization, we are dedicated to providing ChEGSA members with opportunities to build a professional network and exchange ideas. As a student-run organization, our aim is to foster leadership as well as teamwork among graduate students.
