The WA Chemical Branch operates a joint technical program with the Institution of Chemical Engineers in Australia (IChemE). The program typically consists of 2-3 student events held at Curtin University, 3-4 technical presentations usually held at Engineers Australia and 1-2 plant visits.
Why you should be involved
The joint committee encourages participation by members in panel activities and welcomes any suggestions for technical presentations or plant visits.
Participation in chemical panel activities is a good way to maintain knowledge and skills in the wide variety of activities that make up chemical engineering. There is also the opportunity of meeting a wide range of contacts.
Notices for events are predominantly sent out by email and are also occasionally advertised in the division newsletter and weekly email.
