Fellow - FIChemE

As a Fellow you are an engineering professional of distinction, making significant contribution to your profession. You demonstrate technical excellence and leadership of your peers.

What experience do I need?

Achieving Fellowship is about recognition of your employment in an important position of responsibility in chemical engineering for a sufficient period:

  • an ‘important position of responsibility’ is a level very much greater than the requirement for Chartership. You will be expected to have personal responsibility for decisions involving substantial resources and their consequences
  • a ‘sufficient period' is typically a minimum of 5 years working at this high level
  • you can view profiles of recently elected Fellows to gain an idea of the level you should be working at


Please note: In order to apply for this grade you are required to be an existing IChemE Chartered Chemical Engineer (MIChemE). If you are not already an IChemE Chartered Chemical Engineer please apply for the Member grade first.
