Other employment information is available from the various technical societies. See, for example, http://www.consultingengineers.com.

 

Take a look at the July 2006 issue of Chemical Engineering Magazine. Lists the latest ChE salary survey. If you are in the 90 percentile group, your salary might range from roughly $65k to $165k depending on your age. If you are in the 10 percentile group, figure on about $55k, no matter what your age is. In the middle? - take an average.

 

The January 2010 issue of JOM (vol 62, #1, p 12&13) (formerly Journal of Metals) lists salaries for engineers [Petro -$83.1 k, ChemE - $64.9 k] as well as forecast needs for engineers [only 2% increase for ChemEs in 2008-2018 but 72% for biomedical engineers].

Vendor Data

G&P Engineering Soft is proud to make available the software package PhysProps:

PhysProps is a chemical physical property data base and property estimating application. The database is composed of over 6,500 chemical specie names and their synonyms (both organic and inorganic compounds). There are 28 physical properties for each compound in the data base (ex. critical T/P/V, boiling points, vapor pressures, viscosities, etc.)

If the particular compound property is not in the database, it may be possible to estimate it from the estimation module. There are 18 properties which can be estimated from standard techniques.

PhysProps is extremely easy to use and includes the following features:

- An intuitive user interface written by an Engineer, for Engineers.
- Search as you type compound browsing to find the exact compound quickly.
- Property units of measure can be set to a global standard, individually, or changed instantly depending on user preferences.
- Multiple properties can be displayed in either table or graphical viewing formats.
- Contains a graphically based Periodic Table
- Cutting and Pasting is supported to allow exporting data to other applications.

PhysProps is undeniably the most versatile and easy to use physical property data base and estimation software tool ever produced.

General Information:- Does Windows® only - Not available for other platforms.

AIChE position on Professional Registration

 


(Copied from the 1999 AIChE Activities Directory)



The Board of Directors of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers approved on March 19, 1977, and reaffirmed on June 7, 1980, the following position on the registration of individual engineers.

All state legislatures now require registration (licensing) of all engineers who offer their services directly to the public. Also, many regulatory agencies, courts of law, clients, and employers require or recommend registration as evidence of engineering competence, and the number that do so is increasing. Registration is one avenue to define an engineer's level of competence, and it does provide assurance to the public that those with the title, "Registered Professional Engineer" or "Licensed Professional Engineer" have met certain minimum requirements at one point in their careers.

In consideration of these facts, AIChE recommends that its members become registered in their respective states as soon as possible after entering the profession.

In making this recommendation, AIChE recognizes that registration is no substitute for individual professional responsibility for engineering work, a responsibility which is based upon adequate knowledge, experience, and moral integrity, and which extends throughout the entire career of every engineer.
