As a professor of energy engineering at Imperial College London you would expect me to have a passion for education and a desire for learning. Hopefully, they are virtues we pass on to our students, which they hold throughout their careers.
But once students leave and enter the world of work their employers become pivotal to their continuing professional development.
And that’s why IChemE set-up its Corporate Partner initiative. The scheme publicly recognises organisations that invest significantly in their chemical engineering talent.
Accredited training schemes, financial support for membership fees, promotion of the profession and support for campaigns like whynotchemeng all contribute towards being awarded Corporate Partner status by IChemE.
Recently we granted Aker Solutions Corporate Partnership (pictured). Their values and success are built on high quality people. They make a substantial investment in their employees and this is reflected in their excellent training and talent programmes.
Congratulations to Aker Solutions for their achievement.
