Chemical Engineering (CHE)


About Department

Chemical Engineering is one of the oldest and most popular engineering sub-domains that exist in the physical sciences. This field deals with the transformation of raw materials into more useful and valuable forms by application of physical sciences (physics & chemistry) as well as (microbiology, biochemistry & biology) and mathematics.

In simpler terms, Chemical Engineers are involved in designing, construction, and operating machinery and plants to perform a variety of chemical reactions on raw materials to give them the shape of more useful substances. One of the most common examples of chemical engineering products that we use in our daily life includes petroleum products, cosmetics, plastic, and many more. Considering the vast impact of this subject on the things that we use and employ in our day-to-day life, chemical engineering offers excellent career opportunities to students.

Chemical Engineering helps you to understand some of the most important areas of research in science. Chemical Engineering has a very bright future, in the current scenario where the world is battling against some of the major issues like climate change, global warming, or the usage of fossil fuels, The need for chemical engineers is on the rise for advocating as the shift to eco-friendly and renewable energy.

Chemical engineering has been beneficial to the progress of humanity ever since the Roman empire used it in order to make cement. From there on, this field of engineering is responsible for countless contributions in the study of pharmaceuticals, generating electricity using different energy sources like gas and oil, and even has provided immense understanding and knowledge in the science of nuclear reactors.

Chemical Engineering NEWS

Why Chemical Engineering?

Chemical engineering is a study that allows you to solve world problems and helps you become a part of the overall progress of the human race. There are many reasons why one should look for a career in chemical engineering:

1. Wide Variety of Skills

While chemical engineers have a strong foundation in the three different sciences, physics, chemistry, and biology, they also generally are well-versed with concepts in economics, mathematics, management, and about the environment.

2. Highly recruitable

Surveys have shown that a large number of chemical engineering graduates secure stable jobs after their education. More so, they are better paid than most of the other forms of engineering.

3. Opens many career options

The types of jobs for chemical engineers are not limited to the world of chemical engineering. Because of their superior skills in logical thinking, they are eligible for a wide array of job opportunities that exceed the realm of chemical engineering. It can be marketing, management, business, etc.

Why are chemical engineers so highly sought after?

An undergraduate degree in chemical engineering provides:

  • Knowledge of mathematics and science, especially chemistry
  • The capability for analyzing and optimizing complex systems
  • The capacity to work over a wide range of scales, from molecular to worldwide
  • An understanding of the importance of safety and sustainability

This skill set allows chemical engineers to solve problems in almost any technical, business, or management career.

As a chemical engineer, you will be developing skills to work in the following sectors:

  1. Energy
  2. Pharmaceuticals
  3. Food and Beverage
  4. Water Treatment
  5. Oil and Gas

There are a plethora of employment opportunities available to students taking chemical engineering in both the public and private sectors.

As far as employment domains are concerned, chemical engineers can be part of industrial processes fibers, fabrics, paints, medical drugs, biomaterials, gasoline, lubricants, etc used in various industries such as textile, food, plastics, automotive, aerospace, petroleum, oil and gas, biomedical, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. Apart from these, the new and upcoming fields like food, materials, specialty chemicals, plastics, power production, environmental control, waste management, and biotechnology also employ chemical engineers as part of their operations processes
