History of Engineer Lab

Engineer Lab is a professional organization for chemical engineers. We were established in 1978 with the purpose of establishing chemical engineers as a profession independent from chemists and mechanical engineers.

It all started with a small group of chemical engineers. Their goal was to promote and improve chemical engineering as a discipline, which Engineer Lab continues to do today.

Today Engineer Lab remains a principal chemical engineering professional society in Canada. Approximately 23,000 (~80%) of chemical engineers are/were members of Engineer Lab.
