Chemical Engineering


Chemical Engineering is the application of the principles of the physical sciences, together with the principles of economics and human relations, to fields in which matter undergoes a change in state, energy content or composition. The chemical engineer is generally responsible for the design, construction and operation of plant and equipment used in the chemical processing industries.

Chemical engineers are employed in a very wide range of industries including the chemical, minerals, pharmaceutical, food and energy industries. Many chemical engineers work in environmental management, research and development business, management and computer applications.
