or law.

There are a range of careers for chemical engineers. Be it

atomic science or polymers or paper or plastics or drugs or

food, there is chemical engineering involved in all!

As with all engineers, chemical engineers use math, physics, and economics to solve technical problems. The

difference between chemical engineers and other types of engineers is that they apply the knowledge of

chemistry in addition to other engineering disciplines. Some of them design and invent new processes while

some construct instruments and facilities and some plan and operate facilities. So be it atomic science or

polymers or paper or plastics or drugs or food, there is chemical engineering involved in all!

Here are some of the broad things that chemical engineers can work as:

 Chemical engineer (R&D): They develop the ideas for future plants, improving efficiency, environmental

performance and even developing new products

 Design Engineer: They determine how the process is to work. For example which pieces of equipment will be

needed, and how big they will be.

 Operations Engineer: They spend their time ‘onsite’ ensuring that the plant is producing the right amount of

product to the correct specification

 Projects Engineer: They organise and run projects for engineering companies, this can be anything from

managing a small modification to an existing pharmaceutical facility to building a multi-billion dollar

petrochemicals complex.
