Chemical Engineering


Find out more information about Chemical Engineering

They say a chemical engineer does for profit what a chemist does for fun. Chemical Engineers sit in a lab and do scientific experiments just like chemists do; but they also bridge the gap between research and the manufacturing of chemical products and equipment. So they are both chemists as well as engineers.

From optimising DNA sequencing to discovering how algae can be used as an alternative for petroleum, you could say chemical engineers have solutions to any problem. Chemical Engineering is a broad field of study that encompasses Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Engineering Science; and graduates learn to develop new drugs, and fertilizers, increase energy efficiency or manage chemical plants.

Students who graduate with Bachelor or Master degrees in Chemical Engineering enter into the following careers:

• Chemical engineer
• Energy engineer
• Product development scientist
• Materials scientist
• Nuclear engineer
