2013 Polyolefin Conference
2013 Polyolefin Conference

The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) is an international organization founded in 1942 dedicated to the advancement of knowledge for all plastics industry professionals. The SPE serves more than 20,000 plastics professionals in the United States and more than 70 countries around the world.  The TTU Student Chapter, with around 35 undergraduate and graduate student members, is part of the South Texas SPE section.  The main purpose of our chapter is to provide educational resources to help students achieve their career goals relating to polymers and plastics.  Through our organization, students can make contacts with industry (through the annual Polyolefins conference in Houston) and broaden their knowledge of plastics by attending our seminars. Moreover, we hold social events  (Annual Post Competition, Annual Hiking Trip) at least once per semester in order to enhance communication between students.  In 2012, eleven TTU students were awarded scholarships through SPE.
