Chemical Engineering

What is it about?

Chemical Engineering is that branch of engineering, which is concerned with the design, creation, and operation of machines and plants, which perform chemical reactions to solve practical problems, or make useful products. This Chemical Engineeringdiscipline deals with the application of mathematics, physical science and life sciences, to the process of converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms. Chemical Engineers use maths, physics and economics to solve technical problems. These guys design and invent new processes. The Chemical Engineers are employed by almost all companies in the chemical process industry. They can find jobs in petrochemical industries, chemical industries, manufacturing plants, research Institutes, mining industries, and Natural Gas industry etc.

Areas of work

Civil engineer’s task will be to plan, install and maintain plants of large-scale processes in chemical, oil, pharmaceutical industries, mineral-based industries, synthetic fibres petrochemical plants, and petroleum refining plants. 

Chemical engineering is applied in the manufacture of a wide variety of products such as inorganic and organic industrial chemicals, fuels and petrochemicals,ceramics, fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, plastics and elastomers, detergents and detergent products (shampoo, cleaning fluids, soap), explosives, and flavours- additives, pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements. It is also used in food processing,wood processing, and paints industry.
