Careers in Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering is an engineering science which involves the application of physical science (e.g. chemistry and physics), with mathematics, to the process of converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful forms.
Chemical engineers try to find the best possible way to manufacture products. A chemical engineer translates processes developed in the lab into practical applications for the production of products such as medicines, detergents, plastics, and fuels; design plants to maximize productivity and minimize costs.

The basic eligibility criteria is 10+2 Sc (with Physics, Chemistry and Maths). There are many BE/BTech program in chemical engineering of four years duration. Admission to B.Tech program is made generally through entrance tests.
One can also do Diploma in Chemical engineering which is of three years duration and it gives the status of a junior engineer. The candidate can join this course after completing class X.

Career Prospects
A chemical engineer can find jobs in areas like food, materials, specialty chemicals, plastics, power production, environmental control, waste management and biotechnology etc.
Ample employment opportunities available for chemical engineers both in the public sector as well as the private sector. They can get jobs in areas such as processing, operations or research and development, manufacturing, design and construction, finance and also in teaching.
