Launched in 2010, we've hosted programming at hundreds of institutions around the world, bringing the world’s leaders in chemistry, publishing, research, science communication and career development right to your doorstep. Yong Wang, Voiland Distinguished Professor in WSU’s Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering, is the recipient of the 2021 American Chemical Society’s (ACS) E.V. [75][76] The two most commonly used tests are the undergraduate-level tests for general and organic chemistry. We support the development of chemical engineering professionals and provide connections to a powerful network of over 35,000 members in more than 100 countries. The ACS has student chapters in virtually every major university in the United States and outside the United States as well. [125] The ACS defended the figure, saying that it was in line with that of comparable organizations, including for-profit publishers. Tune in on Thursday, December 10th to join AIChE and friends for a special night online as we celebrate the changemakers who are transforming the face of chemical engineering. It is one of the world's largest scientific societies by membership. The Division helps to organize symposia at the international meeting called Pacifichem[49][50] and it organizes the biennial National Organic Chemistry Symposium (NOS) which highlights recent advances in organic chemistry[51] and hosts the Roger Adams Award address. [123][124], In 2004, a group of ACS members criticized the compensation of former executive director and chief executive officer John Crum, whose total salary, expenses, and bonuses for 2002 was reported to be $767,834. [7][11] ACS's headquarters moved to its current location in downtown Washington in 1941. In debates about free access to scientific information, the ACS has been described as "in an interesting dilemma, with some of its representatives pushing for open access and others hating the very thought. Read more about the ACS statement here. Washington, … Founded in 1876 at New York University, the ACS currently has nearly 157,000 members at all degree levels and in all fields of chemistry, chemical engineering, and related fields. Each of these tests consists of 70 multiple-choice questions, and gives students 110 minutes to complete the exam. The New York Section of ACS also gives Leadership Awards. This includes the E. Ann Nalley Regional Award for Volunteer Service to the American Chemical Society, Regional Awards for Excellence in High School Teaching, and the Stanley C. Israel Regional Award for Advancing Diversity in the Chemical Sciences. The site houses information on hundreds of scholarships and grants related to all levels of experience to promote scientific mobility of researchers and practitioners in STEM fields. A Century of CAS » The special issue marking the Chemical Abstracts Service 100th year. A student who completes the required laboratory and course work—sometimes in excess of what a particular college may require for its Bachelor's degree—is considered by the Society to be well trained for professional work. [109] The ACS states that the journal offers the same peer-review standards as its subscription journals, but without publishing charges to either authors or readers. The primary source of income of the ACS is the Chemical Abstracts Service, a provider of chemical databases worldwide. 2019 Braskem Award for Materials Science and Engineering, American Institute of Chemical Engineers; 2019 Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors; 2018 Energy Technology Division Research Award, The Electrochemical Society; 2016 Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum Award, American Institute of Chemical Engineers American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) AIChE promotes excellence in chemical engineering education and global practice. [54] It also organizes the Graduate Research Symposium[55] and manages award and travel grant programs for undergraduates. [117] The ACS was unsuccessful, and as of 2012 PubChem is the world's largest free chemical database. [118], As a major provider of chemistry related information, ACS has been involved with several legal cases over the past few decades that involve access to its databases, trademark rights, and intellectual property. ACS Publications is the publishing division of the ACS. The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) chapter at AUS is also an interest-oriented club that is available for students of all majors to register; however, it mainly targets chemical engineering students belonging to all different classes and standings.
