Industry 4.0 and digital technologies are impacting how chemical engineers work and what they work on. It means chemical engineers need to be become competent in the widespread application of machine data, artificial intelligence, process automation and control, and more.
Therefore, IChemE’s Learned Society Committee (LSC) deemed digitalisation one of the priority topics for the Institution to focus upon a learned society for chemical engineers and managed by IChemE’s member-led Digitalisation Technical Advisory Group (DigiTAG). We must help share this knowledge among the membership and chemical engineering community to enable improvements in capabilities and the responsible application of digital tools to benefit the wider profession and society as a whole.
In a feature article in The Chemical Engineer three IChemE members explain why digital literacy is so important.

Digital technologies are impacting how chemical engineers work and what they work on through the widespread application of machine data, artificial intelligence, process automation and control, and more.
This is why our Learned Society Committee deemed it one of the priority topics for us to focus on a learned society for chemical engineers; to share this knowledge and help members improve their capabilities in their responsible application of digital tools to benefit the wider profession and society as a whole.
In a feature article in The Chemical Engineer, Chartered Member Tony Margetts, Principal Consultant at digitalisation consultant and software provider Factorytalk Ltd, explains the pharmaceutical industry’s challenges around connecting and collecting data.

Every month throughout our centenary year, we will be asking an IChemE member to write a blog about each of the centenary themes. The themes have been selected to highlight and celebrate the enormous contribution that chemical engineering has made to society over the last century.
IChemE Fellow John Kenez, who was part of the editorial panel looking at education & technology, picks out his choices of elements to celebrate, communicate and inspire.

Following the identification of the Learned Society’s priority topics earlier in the year, IChemE has launched a new website area to focus on Responsible Production, Major Hazards Management and Digitalisation.
We caught up with Alexandra Meldrum to find out more.
