The AIChE Ahmedabad University Student Chapter hosted the 2021 South Asia Student Regional Conference from August 27 to 29, 2021. The conference was named ‘Alchemy’ after the Greek process of transformation—a tribute to the way Chemical Engineers are transforming the world.
The Conference was hosted as a hybrid event. The conference saw organising team members, faculty advisors and the attending key dignitaries arrive at the Ahmedabad University campus, where technical and audio-visual arrangements were made. Of the several dignitaries who attended from different geographical locations and time zones were Ms Deborah L. Grubbe (President, AIChE) and Ms June Wispelway (CEO & Executive Director, AIChE) who spoke at the Inauguration of Alchemy ‘21. Other notable guests included Mr Ashok Panjwani (Executive Director, United Phosphorous Limited) and Mr Kirit Adhia (Former Director, Rohit Surfactants Private Limited).
The participants who attended the event virtually were engaged with several interactive and informative sessions lined up through the three days of the conference. Some notable events were the CCPS Workshops, the K12 STEM Outreach Competition, the Chem-E-Safe Competition, the Night of Networking, the ANSYS Workshop, and the Cultural Night.
