Chemical engineers build a bridge between science and manufacturing, applying the principles of chemistry and engineering to solve problems involving the production and use of chemicals.



They can work with :-




Petroleum, chemical and pharmaceutical companies


Healthcare industry


Design & construction, pulp and papers , petrochemicals,food processing, specialty chemicals, biotechnology, environmental health and safety industry


Rubber, metal, cement and aerospace industry

Government agencies such as the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection



The various areas of work of chemical engineers includes:-



Research- Research engineers work with chemists to develop new products and ideas. They may come up with a new material or better way of improving existing products. The mass production of antibiotics e.g. was made possible by chemical engineers in research.



Design- Design engineers create the process that converts raw material into a final product. Chemists invented many synthetic fibers we use today but chemical engineers designed the plants that produce those products.





Development- Chemical engineers look for ways to improve existing processes.





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



Technical sales- Why is not our product doing what it is suppose to do for our customers. Could our new product be used more economically than current material.Why did that new paint peel from one wall. Sales engineers answers such questions. People skills as well as technical ability are required for these chemical engineers.



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


Teaching-Chemical engineers can also work as technical writers , teachers and professors in fields related to process industry.
