Chemical engineers invent, develop and design processes that convert raw materials into useful products – with minimal environmental impact.
Chemical engineers are also involved with pollution control, protection of the environment and with energy conservation.
As populations grow and resources and energy reserves decline, the demand for chemical engineers increases.
As a chemical engineer, you can work in a range of industries including the biotechnology, chemical, energy, environmental, food, mineral, nanotechnology, oil, paper, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries.
