Online calculator for GATE Exam


click here  to practice on line calculator

 

Issue -The decision to introduce virtual calculator in Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE)  has run into rough weather with students launching an online campaign opposing it.
one of the campaign reads: “In the span of four years of engineering, students get used to scientific calculators. Even when these students enter industries they will be using scientific calculators. When it is the real calculator all the way, what is the need of virtual calculators in GATE? The entire engineering practice was on non-programmable calculators and for one exam developing skills, virtual calculator was not a desirable option and will be a tough task.”
A candidate reacted in an online petition, stating, “I am signing this petition because I will also be a victim. I can’t understand when we are using real calculators during the years of engineering, including exams, what is the problem with it in GATE. We are used to these calculators, for one exam and we need to learn a new type. It will affect our speed and also correctness. There is nothing to cheat in real calculator.

However to make it easier THE GATE COACH has provided same calculators in their renowned on line All India Test series.This  actually provides real time Practice to gate aspirant and in turn helps them to improve their performance .

What do Chemical Engineers Do?


It would take too long to list all the products that are impacted by chemical engineers, but knowing what industries employ them may help you comprehend the scope of their work.

Chemical Engineering Jobs, Chem jobs

What do Chemical Engineers Do?

Chemical engineers work in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, design and construction, pulp and paper, petrochemicals, food processing, specialty chemicals, microelectronics, electronic and advanced materials, polymers, business services, biotechnology, and environmental health and safety industries, among others.

Within these industries, chemical engineers rely on their knowledge of mathematics and science—particularly chemistry— to overcome technical problems safely and economically. And, of course, they draw upon and apply their engineering knowledge to solve any technical challenges they encounter. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that chemical engineers only “make things,” though. Their expertise is also applied in the areas of law, education, publishing, finance, and medicine, as well as in many other fields that require technical training.

Specifically, chemical engineers improve food processing techniques, and methods of producing fertilizers, to increase the quantity and quality of available food.

They also construct the synthetic fibers that make our clothes more comfortable and water resistant; they develop methods to mass-produce drugs, making them more affordable; and they create safer, more efficient methods of refining petroleum products, making energy and chemical sources more productive and cost effective.

Chemical engineers also develop solutions to environmental problems, such as pollution control and remediation.

And yes, they process chemicals, which are used to make or improve just about everything you see around you.

Chemical engineers face many of the same challenges that other professionals face, and they meet these challenges by applying their technical knowledge, communication and teamwork skills; the most up-to-date practices available; and hard work. Benefits include financial reward, recognition within industry and society, and the gratification that comes from working with the processes of nature to meet the needs of society.
