A chemical engineer is an engineer who deals with the transformation of raw resources into useful products. This is a profession that merges physics and chemistry. Knowledge in mathematics and mechanics is also an advantage when pursuing this course. A chemical engineer will work to invent processes that include chemical processes that are used in manufacturing. They also work to sustain and improve already tested processes. The processes that they design are required not to just be efficient but also economically viable, environmentally friendly and safe. Chemical engineers are responsible for the manufacture of fertilizers; plastic, glass and petroleum just to mention a few. Disciplines like biomedical engineering were birthed from chemical engineering.
How to Become a Chemical Engineer
An interest in chemistry and physics will go along way to help one advance in this career. Like most engineering courses chemical engineering is technical and requires dedication. It also involves a lot of research so the ability to be analytical is necessary. The entry level is mostly a degree, although because of the technical nature of this course most chemical engineers have more than a degree in the course.
Types, Description, Information
Chemical engineers are hired in manufacturing plants or in industrial plants. They are responsible for the chemical processes that are used in these areas. They are hired to also improve them or come up with new inventions that will ensure efficiency.
Courses, Training and Certification
There are institutions that offer chemical engineering as a degree. Finding a reputable institution is very vital so that one can be able to enjoy the best facilities while pursuing this course.
