Our highest grade of membership recognises Chartered Members who are in a position of senior responsibility in chemical engineering and are likely to have made a significant contribution to the profession through their experience, technical excellence and leadership skills.

Fellows get access to all membership resources, plus:

To become a Fellow (FIChemE) you must:
