About us

IChemE has developed relationships with a number of international bodies including The South African Institution of Chemical Engineers (SAIChE) and on 31 July 2014, we signed a collaboration agreement to offer dual membership to all SAIChE and IChemE members in South Africa.

Find out about the benefits of joining both institutions and how to join IChemE via SAIChE.

What is SAIChE?

SAIChE is a professional society in South Africa dedicated to advancing the science and practice of chemical engineering. Our aim is to promote high standards in the profession by enhancing the professional competence of its members.

SAIChE promotes the following:

  • opportunities for professional development of its members
  • monitoring of chemical engineering education in South Africa
  • continuing education programmes and CPD accreditation


Our respective Presidents would like to thank our members in supporting this collaboration. View their letter to members sent September 2014 after the signing of the agreement.
