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.

Masters Opportunities through GATE 2016 or without GATE 2016 for Chemical Engineering

Hello Guys, You’re looking for admission in Masters after GATE 2016 Results.
For M.Tech admissions in IITs, you have to apply in each IIT separately, and the forms will be available just after GATE Result i.e. March 19, 2016. (Please visit the sites ASAP because the application deadline may come).
the Priority wise list of IITs is as follows:
than there new IITs, you can visit there websites.
you can apply in M.S., M.Tech(TA) or M.Tech (RA) in Chemical engineering or other disciplines like:
  • Energy Systems and Engineering
  • Environmental Science & Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering and Operations Research
  • Materials, Manufacturing and Modeling
  •  Material Science
  • Process Engineering

  • Petroleum engg.
and many more….
and yes, there are two more colleges equivalent to IIT Bombay as follows:.
For admissions in NITs, you may apply for Centralized Counselling for M.Tech (CCMT 2016)
Here is one of the opportunity for you,
this is the institute where you get specialization in “Industrial engineering or Safety” etc. it is one of the better institute in INDIA.
If you’re looking for other than GATE, than there is the list of private colleges, you can join for M.Tech:
for more details you can mail us at
And please do discuss after your GATE results whatever it is, so that we can guide you better opportunities as per your GATE Score.


Chemical engineering if pursued sincerely is highly profitable and the scope in India is huge. We are the top paid when compared with the pass outs of other branches and lately there has been a boom in this field and placements are sure. But first you should know what chemical engineering is because students have a misconception about it.A common fear that the work conditions of chemical engineers are hazardous is a fluke. Chemical engineers work in safe environment and direct contact with chemicals is minimum. Chemical engineers in India recruited in many sectors. Some being : petroleum and petrochemicals, paper, fertilizers, rubber, pharmaceuticals, organic and inorganic industries etc. Petroleum and the pharmaceutical sectors are booming and quite in demand.

Some of the major companies are listed below :

In petroleum and gases

  • Reliance industries
  • Essar oils
  • Gujarat oils
  • ONGC
  • BPCL


  • Indo Gulf fertilizers
  • Fertilizers and Chemicals Travancore Ltd
  • Coromandel fertilizers

Some other companies being :

  • Bengal Chemical and Pharmaceuticals
  • Orissa Drugs and Chemical Ltd
  • Indian Drugs and Pharmaceutical Ltd (IDPL)
  • Bihar Drugs and Organic Chemical Ltd
  • Naramada colours pvt ltd
  • Honeywell
  • Indian Drugs and Pharmaceuticals Ltd
  • Aditya Birla Chemicals
  • Arati Industries Ltd
  • L&T

Many students also get recruited to the IT sector. A student desiring such option must additionally have knowledge of any of the computer languages. Some of the companies being TCS, Infosys, Wipro, CTS etc. But it is always best to go for core companies. The fact i understood is that one’s profile should be good. Every student undergoes internship during their course and for you to be outstanding and to get an upper hand in placements it is always better to do internship abroad during your engineering course. 

To be recruited in the Public Sector Undertakings in chemical engineering , you just need to qualify GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) and after that you may apply for any of the top PSUs in India, like ONGC, IOCL, BPCL, HPCL, GAIL, NFL, BARC etc. You can ask for proper guidance through e-mail or call just fill up the little details here.

You can also go for higher studies to make your career firm. The undergraduates can take M.Tech or MS in various fields and courses are offered in various IIT’s and NIT’s in India, by just qualifying GATE exam with a good score.

You can do coaching or have proper guidance for cracking GATE exam, to know more just click here.

The topics being : environmental engineering, piping and design, nanotechnology, metallurgy, chemical engineering etc. The students can also take up research options in their interested fields and earn while pursuing their course. You need to write GATE to get into IIT’s and NIT’s. The companies these days consider GATE score too for recruitment and therefore preparing for GATE is very important. You can also do MS in India and abroad as well. The students can take up research options in their interested field and earn while pursuing their course. The basic criteria to do MS abroad is write Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and get a good score. Next is English proficiency tests such as IELTS, TOEFL etc. Get atleast 6.5 out 9 to get admissions in  college abroad. To do MS in US or UK is too high its not easy to extend your visa after your course. But you can also do post graduation cheaply but with more value.
