Che-Comp Software Foundation is a not-for-profit international organization which seeks
to foster the creation of quality and affordable chemical engineering softwares for the
chemical engineering community worldwide.
The foundation is established through collaborative efforts of chemical engineering
students and professionals dedicated to the cause of promoting computer applications in
The foundation is run by a team composed of competent computer programmers, expert
advisers, dedicated researchers, active contributors and generous supporters.
Who can join the foundation?
Individual chemical engineering students and professionals are welcome to join and
support the foundation.
Is there a membership fee?
The foundation is created in the spirit of volunteerism and commitment. No membership
fee shall be collected.
Who will finance the
The foundation seeks to implore the aid of generous donors and benefactors who believe
in the cause of computer applications in chemical engineering. The foundation welcomes
financial aids and/or grants from chemical companies, organizations, and institutions who
share the same vision --- quality and affordable chemical engineering
softwares for the chemical engineering community worldwide.
Financial supports, aids and grants shall be used to finance the software development
projects of the foundation which includes research and programming.
How do I join?
The foundation accepts volunteer members to join the team. You will have to decide
which team you want to join: programming, research, adviser, contributor or supporter.
A member of the programming team implements program design of the software project.
They decide on what programming platform to work on. The programming team gets its input
from the research team and from the team of advisers.
The research team conducts research on possible software projects to implement. The
team is responsible for providing technical data such as empirical and design equations,
physical properties, etc. The research team exhausts all possible means to gather relevant
information --- emails, books, journals, newsletters, conversations, etc.
The team of advisers consists of people from the academe and industry who have the
technical expertise needed to push through with the software project. This team of
advisers imparts technical knowledge such as design concepts, computational methods, etc.
The team of contributors comprises of people who are willing to share their existing
application softwares. They are those who distribute their softwares for free or for an
affordable price. Software contributions are screened for quality.
The team of supporters involves people who are generous supporters of the project but
do not have the luxury of time to actively involve. They help the foundation in terms of
financial aids and/or grants.
After deciding which team you want to join, you will then have to submit an application

address will serve as an official contact information between you and the foundation.
Can I join the mailing list
if I am not a member?
Certainly! Our mailing list is open to all students and professionals who have a
passion for computer applications in chemical engineering. And this is the only criteria
for being a list member. A member of the mailing list is not necessarily a member of the
foundation unless he or she has explicity applied for membership to the Che-Comp Software
Foundation. However, the discussions or ideas coming from the mailing list members are
as valuable as the discussions or ideas coming from the members of the foundation.
