The Materials And Chemical Engineering Graduate Student Association (MACE) was formed as a conduit for graduate students to interact through meaningful collaborations, exchange of intellectual property, access to physical assets as well as interact together on  a departmental level with faculty. MACE was formed in the Fall of 2013 and has full standing and acknowledgment from multiple campus wide organizations including the Student Government Association, Graduate Student Congress and the Engineering Student Council. Currently MACE focuses its efforts on bringing together graduate students within the department in a variety of social and professional events throughout the semester.
