A century of achievements

A century of achievements, a future of success

2022 marks IChemE’s centenary as the inaugural meeting of the Institution was held at the Hotel Cecil in London on 2 May 1922. Read more about the history of the Institution in this extract from The Chemical Engineer, written to commemorate IChemE’s half century in 1972.

From that first meeting where approximately 100 chemical engineers attended, to the vibrant membership body of over 30,000 members across the globe today, IChemE has been advancing chemical engineering’s contribution for 100 years. View IChemE's milestones.

We will be commemorating this milestone by celebrating our profession and the members who have shaped it. Through personal accounts, thought-provoking articles and a programme of webinars, we will be highlighting the impact of chemical engineering and the ideas and solutions being developed for a progressive future.
