About Chemical Engineer
Chemical engineering is one of the emerging careers that deal with designing and supervision of chemical reactions in an industry for the purpose of energy production or human development. In the current scenario, chemical engineering is significant as there is a global shift towards renewable resources such as hydroelectric and solar. These fields require innovation and development to make sure that these resources can meet our energy needs. The major responsibility of the chemical engineers is to apply the principles of physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology to solve the problems that involve the production or use of chemicals, drugs, food and many other products. The design equipment and processes for large-scale manufacturing and direct facility operations.
