What Does Chemical Engineer Do?
« on: February 16, 2013, 04:15:43 AM »
Hi,
I plan to take chemical engineering degree course but i'm not sure what does a chemical engineer do. The explanation from the internet is a little bit general... According to what i've searched,  chemical engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with the design, construction, and operation of machines and plants that perform chemical reactions to solve practical problems or make useful products (plss correct me if i'm wrong). Does anyone has a more specific explanation on chemical engineering?

This is the sort of question the internet is very useful for.

Do you have any specific questions?

It's also a very common question on this forum, particularly this sub-forum:

http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?topic=63272.0

and also some in the Chemical Education sub-forum, you can do a search.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

thanks for the info :). Actually does chemical engineer must be good in designing and usually work in lab/office or outdoor?
