Chemical engineering is one of the core and vast branch of engineering and academic record matters alot while looking for a job as chemical engineer .They play a multi faceted role depending upon the type of industry they are working with and knowledge of various processes and skills required in performing such work is crucial which is feasible only if someone has studied the chemical engineering principles thoroughly. The areas of work of chemical engineers are as follows:-
Research- Research engineer work with chemists to develop new ideas and new products. They may come up a new material or a better way to produce exiting products. The mass production of antibiotics for example was made possible by chemical engineers in research.
Design- Design engineers create the process that converts a raw material into a final product. Chemists invented the many synthetic fibers we use today, but chemical engineers designed the plants that produce them at an affordable cost.
Development- Chemical engineers look for ways to improve new or existing processes. The greening of much of the third world is due to a big reduction in the cost of amonia production, which made it possible for poorer nations to manufacture important fertilizer.
Technical Sales- Why is not a particular doing what it is supposed to for our customers. Could our new product be used more economically than current materials. Why did that new paint peel from one house. Sales engineers answer such questions. People skills as well as technical ability are very important for these chemical engineers.
Production- The manufacture of chemicals requires continuous supervision. Production engineers are always answering questions such as if the product is of the specified purity; if the production rate is what it should be; if control instruments are performing properly and if the process is as safe as possible.
To performefficientlyin any of the work area mentioned above, the academic record does matter while searching for a job after completion of degree
