Faith Cao


Position Title


How did you find AIChE and why did you join? 

I transferred into UC Davis in 2016 and I found AIChE because someone in my ECH 80 class had advertised about a chemical engineering club. I joined to find out what opportunities AIChE could offer me and to make friends since a lot of my friends from community college did not attend Davis.


How has AIChE help you grow as professionally and/or personally?

Personally, AIChE has given me the tools and opportunities to network with so many people I would have never met if I hadn't joined. Professionally, it has given me the opportunity to expand my portfolio while being an engineer.


What's one interesting fact about you? 

I am ethnically Chinese, but I do a lot of traditional Vietnamese things since my parents were born in Vietnam. My dad's family was born in a village where they spoke teo chew. So I can speak Cantonese, Vietnamese, Teo Chew, and English.
