Our aim

IChemE London and South East Young Member Group is a community of engineers that come from a common education background.

A place where young professionals can discuss and share early career experience as well forming informal peer to peer mentoring network; building the foundations of the bridge from early engagement through to later professional career.

With a high density of universities in London offering IChemE accredited programmes, the group is well placed to provide a collaborative opportunity between academics. With a strong committee of around ten from all backgrounds including industry and academia, we have the purpose to organise and deliver the group's vision. We do this by inspiring the next generation of chemical engineers by supporting and promoting early engagement programmes. We also organise industry insight opportunities and careers events. The best part of being a member of the IChemE YMG is you get a chance to socialise with like-minded people over a drink in a great London pub.

What we do

  • support the next generation of leaders in biochemical/chemical engineering research and corporate environments by encouraging a network of:

    • young professionals in the region
    • students studying in the region
    • students returning to the region
  • support the above through activities which encourage networking opportunities, outreach, social activities and technical talks/schemes
  • support young professionals through their Chartered Member application
  • encourage Continuing Professional Development of young members
  • encourage young members to become chemical engineering/STEM Ambassadors
  • encourage members to support diversity projects developed by the London Diversity & Inclusion Working Group (DIWG).
