Chemical Engineers, Society of Monash University (SMUCE)



The Society of Monash University Chemical Engineers (SMUCE) aims to bridge the gap between the classrooms and the world outside university. It serves as a link between students, academics and industry.

SMUCE is a student run society aiming to help and engage with the chemical engineering student community. Through our hugely popular Industry Seminar Series we strive to expose our fellow students to the chemical engineering world by regularly inviting industry members to visit. These visits involve a presentation to students regarding what it is like to be an engineer in industry and to learn about graduate and vacation opportunities. We also work closely with the Department of Chemical Engineering and Monash Employment and Careers Development to increase student awareness of the professional opportunities and to build upon the skills necessary to aid them in their professional undertakings.

Socially, SMUCE organises a number of events to facilitate networking opportunities between students, different year levels and academic staff. Such events include barbecues, game competition nights and our annual SMUCE Academic Dinner.
