Chemical engineering is a dynamic field that involves applying principles from fields such as mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology for the production of chemicals and their use as food, drugs, fuel and a host of other products. It also involves finding economical ways to utilise our energy resources, for the ultimate benefit of mankind and the environment. The field involves designing and developing processes to extract economically useful materials and transforming them into valuable products. This branch of engineering helps you get into the chemical, petrochemicals and in the refining industry. As a career, chemical engineering is a field in demand.
