As a chemical engineer, you will apply the principles of chemistry, physics, mathematics, and mechanical and electrical engineering to solve problems involving the production or use of chemicals and biochemicals.
You may design equipment and processes for large-scale chemical manufacturing, plan and test methods of manufacturing products and treating byproducts, or supervise production. You will need to be aware of all aspects of chemical manufacturing and how the manufacturing process affects the environment and the safety of workers and consumers.
Chemical engineers work in a variety of industries, such as:
pulp and paper
Some chemical engineers specialize in the development of specific products. Other specialize in a particular field, such as nanomaterials, or in a particular chemical process, such as oxidation or polymerization.
