Chemical engineers build abridge between science and manufacturing, applying the principles of chemistry and engineering to solve problems involving the production or use of chemicals.. Chemical engineers can find employment with :-

Petroleum, chemical and pharmaceutical companies

healthcare industry

design and construction, pulp and paper , petrochemicals, food processing, specialty chemicals, microelectronics, electronic and advanced materials, polymers , business, services, biotechnology , environmental health and safety industry

Rubber, metal, cement, paint, plastic and aerospace industry

biotechnology industry

Government agencies such as the department of energy and the environmental protection agency.

The work of chemical engineers in any of the the above industry may include any of the following:-

Research- research engineers work with chemists to develop new ideas and products. They may come up with a new material or a better way to produce existing 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 this important fertilizer.

Production- The manufacture of chemicals requires continuous supervision . Production engineers are always answering questions such as if the product is of the specified purity;

Management- Many chemical engineers are promoted to management positions. While less involved in technology , they may make policy and business decisions, train new engineers and solve human rather than technical problems.
