Rubber, metal, cement and aerospace industry

Government agencies such as the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection

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.

People skills as well as technical ability are required for these chemical engineers.
