By raising awareness of digital technologies and improving members’ capabilities in their responsible application, we will benefit IChemE members, the profession and society.

Why is this important?

Digital technologies are impacting how we do work and what we work on, and this change affects all of us.

The profession is changing due to the widespread application of new including, but not limited to, big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, automation, process control, visualisation, and cyber security.

On top of that, the impact of using these new capabilities is leading to new digital ways of working. Examples include digital twins for process design, visualisation for remote assistance, big data for automatically detecting abnormalities and diagnosing causes.
