IChemE has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM), agreeing to a co-operative relationship that aims to advance the quality of chemical and process engineering nationally.
IEM is one of the largest professional organisations in Malaysia and IChemE’s joint association will provide enhanced benefits to members of both organisations through social links and the exchange of information and knowledge.
IChemE Malaysia chair, BP Chow says that this relationship will bring about a more co-ordinated approach when it comes to promoting high standards in engineering, education and training.
“The relationship will also provide an opportunity to enhance a wider public profile and appreciation of the chemical engineering profession.
“Members of both organisations will be encouraged to take advantage of reciprocal benefits and discounts to meetings, events, training and professional development opportunities, that will help to work towards securing their Chartered Chemical Engineer status.”
Chow added: “IChemE’s international experience will help to provide input to IEM’s work on policy matters within Malaysia and its wider work across the engineering spectrum within the country.”
