Morton Medal

Named in memory of a past IChemE president, Professor Frank Morton, this medal commemorates his dedicated service to teaching. The award provides professional recognition by IChemE for excellence in chemical engineering education.

Frank Morton was a popular chemical engineering professor who taught at both Birmingham and Manchester University. 

The Morton Medal is awarded to the individual who has best demonstrated excellence in chemical engineering education. In particular, it looks to recognise the work of outstanding educators as well as 'game changers', and to promulgate best practice in chemical engineering education.

Nominations are sought from all those interested in engineering and education. The best nominee is selected by a panel consisting of representatives from Birmingham and Manchester University, together with representatives from IChemE’s education community, and passed to the IChemE Awards Committee for a final decision.

How to nominate

Nominations open on 1 September and close on 31 October each year unless specified otherwise.
