IChemE accreditation continues

last modified Jun 28, 2016 02:58 PM

We are pleased to announce that the IChemE has accredited our undergraduate degrees in Chemical Engineering.

The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) is the global professional membership organisation for chemical engineering professionals and anyone involved with the process industries. Through its programme of accreditation, the institution aims to recognise and share best practice in the University education of Chemical Engineers. At the same time it seeks to promote development of the profession, by encouraging innovation in chemical engineering programme design and delivery.

The accredited degrees will help our graduates with a pathway to qualification as a Chartered Chemical Engineer (MIChemE) and registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

The MEng course here at Cambridge has been accredited since 1962.

Head of Department, Professor John Dennis said, "Sincerest thanks are due to Dr Patrick Barrie for masterminding all of this and to all members of staff who contributed to the outcome, particularly around safety in the Department."

Our undergraduates normally spend one year studying Engineering or Natural Sciences, then transfer to this department where they graduate with an MEng degree after 3 years with us (4 years total). A few leave after 2 years with us (3 years total) and graduate with a BA. The IChemE has accredited our course for students entering Cambridge in the 2016-17 academic year for five years. The accreditation is at B-standard for students leaving after passing Part IIA, and at M-standard for students leaving after passing Part IIB Chemical Engineering Tripos.
