The Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering has received full accreditation for its undergraduate degrees by IChemE, the Institution of Chemical Engineers. IChemE is the global professional membership organisation for chemical, biochemical and process engineers, with a membership exceeding 44,000 members in over 120 countries.

IChemE accredited degrees and diplomas are recognised through Mutual Recognition Agreements worldwide and by Engineering Council UK (consistent with the UK-SPEC regulation, issued January 2014).

Accredited degrees and diplomas help provide graduates with a pathway to qualification as a Chartered Chemical Engineer (MIChemE) and registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) or Incorporated Engineer (IEng) with the Engineering Council and/or as a Chartered Scientist (CSci) with the Science Council.

This accreditation further cements the Faculty of Engineering's reputation as the top engineering faculty in New Zealand, and provides Chemical and Materials Engineering students with an internationally recognised degree.
