CACHE is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit that promotes the development and distribution of computer-related and/or technology-based educational aids for the chemical engineering profession.  Some of the activities include:

  • Organize and promote conferences and workshops on Computer Aided Process Operations/Chemical Process Control, Computer Aided Process Design, Molecular Modeling and Simulation, Systems Biology in Engineering, and Process Analytics and Machine Learning.
  • Maintain a Teaching Resource Center: This center ( houses a curated collection of materials to assist faculty in teaching chemical engineering core courses.
  • Provide faculty grants to support development of computer-based educational modules (
  • Support faculty awards: ASEE Edgar CACHE Award, AIChE Himmelblau Award, AIChE Evans Award  
  • Provide graduate student travel awards: over $40,000 in last three years for conferences
  • Provide student awards for best posters at conferences

Some recent accomplishments:

Future Initiatives:

  • Industrial Datasets – Making curated sets available to faculty.
  • Molecular Modeling – working to develop curated best practices and teaching materials on how to use quantum chemistry, molecular simulation and machine learning.
