About Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering deals with life sciences (biology, microbiology and biochemistry), physical sciences (chemistry and physics) and mathematics.

Chemical Engineers convert raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms that we use every day. The sector falls into two subgroups;

Chemical Process Engineers: The design and manufacture of plants and machinery.

Chemical Product Engineers: Developing chemicals, foods, cleaning products and pharmaceutical ingredients.

Almost everything that is manufactured has had a chemical engineer look at it at some stage of the process. Are you ready for the responsibility?
