How do I become a corporate partner?

There are six components of corporate partnership – two components are essential and the other four are optional and depend upon your preferred partner grade.

The essentials

IChemE membership

As a corporate partner you recognize the benefits of IChemE membership for both your company and your staff. Corporate partners pay the annual IChemE membership fees of all eligible staff.

An accredited company training scheme

All corporate partners will secure IChemE accreditation of their graduate company training scheme (ACTS). If you don't have a graduate training scheme please visit our ACTS page or contact us at for further guidance.

The optional components

Inspiring the next generation

By sponsoring whynotchemeng you will help to ensure the pipeline of young chemical engineers keeps flowing and be able to promote your company to students considering a career in chemical engineering.

Connecting with young engineers

By sponsoring IChemE On Campus you will help to ensure that our undergraduate and postgraduate campaigns remain successful and continue to grow. IChemE On Campus supports all student members to supplement their technical understanding, ability to communicate and non-technical skills.

Championing Chartered status and CPD

As a corporate partner you will commit to helping your staff develop through training, participation in technical and local events and professional registration.

Sharing your knowledge and expertise

By sharing your knowledge and expertise as a corporate partner, you will demonstrate your commitment to investing in the wider profession.
