The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering


The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE) is a national, not-for-profit, professional association that unites chemical engineering students and professionals who work in industry, academia and government.

The CSChE is one of the three Constituent Societies of the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC), along with the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC) and the Canadian Society for Chemical Technology (CSCT). CSChE is governed and funded by its membership.

CESS and the CSChE

CESS is the University of Calgary undergraduate student chapter of the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering. CESS organizes events in collaboration with the CSChE, including a career panel, a process safety panel, and an industry talk. Every year, CESS sends delegates to represent the University of Calgary and the Schulich School of Engineering at the annual Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference (CCEC).


Did you know that if you are in your first year of your Chemical Engineering degree (i.e. second year Chemical or Oil & Gas Engineering at Schulich), you can get a free membership with the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE)? If you are an upper year, you are highly encouraged to sign up for a membership to receive benefits as a CSChE member!
