A dedicated field of study to train engineers emerged in 1901. While topics and teaching tools change, educators always endeavour to equip young engineers with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet new challenges with creative problem solving.
Read all about how the the sector has been shaped by chemical engineers and chemical engineering from 1900 to 2020. This unique content has been constructed and curated by members of IChemE from across the world
This panel discussion drew on the experiences of the diverse range of panelists and gathered their perspectives about current and future industry and education trends. It also discussed key challenges facing the chemical engineering education and how it will deliver the industry needs of the future.
Dr Esther Ventura-Medina provides reflections on the IChemE’s second centenary webinar, Shaping the future of Chemical Engineering Education, in which panelists from diverse backgrounds discussed the challenges faced in chemical engineering education and training, how these challenges can be met, the curriculum and classroom of the future and how to engage with the next generation
Pal Oil Industry is a major contributor to the food, chemicals, and fuel sector and Chemical Engineering plays an important role in palm oil processing. The foothold in downstream (refining & oleochemicals) is now gaining traction in upstream (plantation & milling). This growing acceptance of process engineering reveals the exciting possibilities for chemical engineering graduates to improve palm oil processing
A Systematic method for sustainable chemical process design was developed since 1970s. One of the widely recognised family of approaches is arguably process integration. The development of process integration techniques mainly focused on heat exchanger network synthesis back in 1970s, with the first user guide published by the IChemE .
