Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering and Plant Design


Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering science that deals with physics and chemistry applied mathematics and economics to generate, convert, transport, and use chemicals and energy. This ties in with process plant design from a practical and functional perspective as the delivery of liquids alone is as critical as understanding chemical engineering as an industry professional.

Chemical engineers apply their chemistry and engineering skills to transform raw materials into utilizable goods, like medicines, fuels, chemicals, and plastics. They are also involved in the research. They also design and perform experimental researches to make new and better customs of production of chemicals, controlling harmful effects, conserving the resources
