Membership Types and Prices

AIChE membership is one of the best things you can do for your professional development, no matter what stage of your career you are in. There is no better way to meet as many accomplished chemical engineers. Or to tap into such a deep reserve of specialized information.  For each stage of your life, membership has its advantages.

If you are currently a member of AIChE, you may want to consider becoming a Senior Member.  Senior Members have the privilege of holding office, voting on amendments to the Constitution, nominating and voting for officers and directors. Being a Senior Member is a prerequisite for becoming an AIChE Fellow. A member may, after regular application and election, become a Senior Member. A Senior Member who has satisfied the Fellow Bylaw requirements and has demonstrated significant accomplishments in, and contributions to, the profession may be nominated for consideration to be elected Fellow.

Undergraduate Student Members

Undergraduate student members enjoy the exclusive privileges and benefits that are common to all classes of membership, but not the privileges of nominating, voting, and holding office. A student member may not retain this class of membership beyond the end of the calendar year in which he or she is last enrolled as a student. U.S. and Canadian undergraduate students enjoy free membership thanks to AIChE's ScaleUp program and International students (living outside the U.S. and Canada) pay $7 for membership.
