Professional societies

Colleagues standing in a small group discussing something while working at an office.

At the UNSW School of Chemical Engineering we cover a wide range of study areas and are associated with many different professional societies. Some cover broad chemical disciplines, yet others are more focused on a specific area.

Professional societies are a great source of information on your chosen field. They hold networking events and provide invaluable links for your career advancement. Most engineers are members of one or more societies and it’s up to you to choose. Below you can find links to the societies we are associated with.
