Career in Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the application of physical science and life sciences with mathematics to the process of converting raw materials into more useful forms, such as the production of soap from sodium hydroxide.
Chemical engineers ensure the processes are operated safely, sustain-ably and economically. Chemical engineers are required in pharmaceuticals companies, textiles, paper, plastics, petroleum and food industry etc.

Chemical engineering largely involves the design, improvement and maintenance chemical or biological transformations for large-scale manufacture.
