The whynotchemeng (wnce) campaign was started in 2001by IChemE as a response to a rapid decline in the number of students applying for and accepting places for chemical engineering degrees. The campaign is based upon an informative website http://www.whynotchemeng.com/; chemical engineers who attend schools careers events as volunteers, and supporting literature. It promotes chemical engineering as a positive career choice, offering a varied and interesting job that can also benefit society.
