Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE)

About this partner

Founded in 1922, the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) is the UK based and internationally recognised qualifying body and learned society for chemical, biochemical and process engineers. We exist to advance chemical engineering’s contribution for the benefit of society.

We support our members in applying their expertise and experience to make an influential contribution to solving major global challenges, and we are the only organisation to award Chartered Chemical Engineer status.




Our qualified membership grades demonstrate professional competence and commitment to employers, policy makers, regulators and society. A key component of membership is being able to connect with like-minded professionals. IChemE members get access to a supportive network of contacts via regional member groups and technical special interest groups.


Our training courses and conferences are delivered online and in many locations around the world. Our extensive programme is designed to give delegates access to the latest thinking and good practice, and attracts participants from many sectors including: energy, water, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, healthcare and food production.

A growing collection of sustainability themed on-demand online training courses are currently offered as part of IChemE membership.

Learned society

We recognise the importance of continued learning and keeping up to date with all the latest industry news and technical knowledge. IChemE members benefit from resource such as The Chemical Engineer magazine, Loss Prevention Bulletin, the Knowledge Hub and more.


Through our accreditation of university programmes, training courses, apprenticeships, and graduate training schemes, we aim to raise standards and foster good practice and help provide graduates with a route to qualification as a Chartered Chemical Engineer (MIChemE).

We are licenced to award various registrations on behalf of the Engineering Council, Science Council, Society for the Environment, European Federation of National Engineering Associations (FEANI) and the Environment Agency.
