Why is chemical engineering not so well known in Asia....
i am a chemical engineering student myslef and when im asked about my college course they always reply with a raised brow and with the phrase:
"So your a chemist?"
what really is the difference between the two profession????
where do thier jobs separate?

I think it depends on which part of Asia you are in.

It is an extremely popular course in Singapore - the next biggest oil refinery after Japan in Asia and also home of one of the largest international petroleum exchanges in the world.
