Personal prestige

Chartered Chemical Engineer, Professional Process Safety Engineer and EngTech registrations within chemical engineering are only available through IChemE and are recognisable worldwide. A Fellow of IChemE is someone who has reached the upper echelon of engineers in your field.

Better job prospects 

Membership of IChemE demonstrates your commitment to professional development, and professional qualifications like Chartered Chemical Engineer and Professional Process Safety Engineer make you much more employable (just look at the job adverts in tce magazine).


Our salary survey shows that Chartered Chemical Engineers traditionally earn more than their non-chartered colleagues.  Whilst salary is only one indication of professional competence, it is clear that competent people generally seek peer recognition through professional qualification.  So gaining this exclusive professional qualification could lead to better opportunities and a higher salary in the future.

Whether you read tce magazine, take advantage of discounted courses, conferences and journal subscriptions or attend/organise local seminars make sure you are well-informed of the latest research and developments in your field. This will make you a better engineer and, ultimately, more employable!
