Chemical engineering build a bridge between science and manufacturing , applying the principles of chemistry and engineering to solve problems involving the production or use of engineers. There are many work areas of chemical engineers like:-
Research- Research engineers work with chemists to develop new ideas and new products. They may come up 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 materiel 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 require 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 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 , we are very important 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 the process industries.

The chemical engineers can work for both private and public sector industries. They can find employment in chemical industries, petrochemical industries, manufacturing plants, mining industries, refineries, research institutes, oil and natural industry etc. Firms dealing with biotechnological and nano technological operations also need chemical engineers.
