Princeton AIChE Student Chapter Wins National ChemE Jeopardy Competition

Princeton’s AIChE student chapter took first place in the national ChemE Jeopardy Competition on November 12th, 2016, at the AIChE 2016 Annual Student Conference in San Francisco.  The team, consisting of Martin Kurian ’18, Tristan Lim ’18, Frank Nguyen ’17, and Joe Rummaneethorn ’18, edged out eight competitors (each of whom was already a regional champion), including third-place Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and second-place New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.  More details on the competition, including example questions and photos of the winning teams, can be found on the AIChE ChEnected blog; the first place certificate is currently on display in the Ernest F. Johnson Lounge (A203 EQuad).  An earlier incarnation of the Princeton team, consisting of Kurian, Lim, and Rummaneethorn, won the right to represent the Mid-Atlantic region back in April at the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Student Regional Conference, as reported in a previous news item.  Congrats to the entire team!!
