ACEX Imperial Chemical Engineering Department Chemical Engineering Society

Welcome to the Society

The Chemical Engineering Society was established by postgraduates in 1935, but soon became dormant following the outbreak of the Second World War. With the introduction of an undergraduate course in 1937, ChemEngSoc truly took off after the war and has continued to flourish ever since. 


Every ChemEng student (Undergraduate, MSc and PhD) automatically gains free society membership, meaning the society boasts over 1000 members of over 30 different nationalities. The ultimate goal of the society is to ensure that each and every student within the department gets the most out of their time at Imperial College London, through both exposure to industry and regular social events.

I am very honoured to be President of the Chemical Engineering Society, which is run by and for the students of the department I encourage you all to actively participate in the excellent activities, both social and otherwise, that the society offers.

It is truly one of the outstanding features of the department. Many of my favourite memories at my time at Imperial have been as a member of the society, and I hope that you will similarly make great memories, and friends, for the future. 

Professor Paul Fennell,

ChemEngSoc President
