Chartered Scientist – a new designation for all scientists

The Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST) is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a License by the Science Council to award Chartered Scientist to appropriately qualified members.

The designated Chartered Scientist (CSci) is an indication of excellent and improving standards across all scientific disciplines and encompasses all high calibre scientists and teachers of science.

Chartered Scientists must have met the benchmark standard of at least a Masters level or equivalent degree qualification and a period of five years’ postgraduate work experience in science or teaching of science. CSci status includes a commitment to maintain CPD records.
