UI engineers win individual and chapter honors

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Joseph Mohr of Iowa City, a senior chemical engineering major in the University of Iowa College of Engineering, and the UI student chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) recently received national recognition at the annual AIChE meeting held in Dallas, Texas.

Mohr was one of only 15 students from across the country to receive an AIChE scholarship, valued at $1,000, for the 1999-2000 academic year. This is the sixth time in the past nine years that a UI student has won an AIChE scholarship.

The University of Iowa AIChE student chapter received the AIChE Outstanding Student Chapter Award for the 1998-1999 academic year. This marks the seventh year in a row the UI group has won the award, which is presented annually to the top 10 percent of student chapters across the nation.
