Why get Chartered?

IChemE asks newly Chartered Chemical Engineers why it was important to them to achieve this milestone. The strongest motivations are:

  • recognition that you have reached the next stage in your career
  • an expectation from colleagues that you will apply, to benchmark yourself against the professional gold standard
  • career development opportunities because you have gained external validation of your competence
  • possible salary increase as independently assessed Chartered Chemical Engineers are often given more responsibility
  • demonstration that you take pride in your profession and make a commitment to best practice
  • access to discipline specific registrations


How much more might I earn?

The annual IChemE Salary Survey consistently shows that Chartered Chemical Engineers earn more than non-chartered chemical engineers of the same age. Use the IChemE Salary Survey to find out more.
