What are the major job responsibilities?Chemical engineers apply the principles of science such as chemistry, biology, and physics; and math to solve problems that involve the production or use of chemicals such as fuel, drugs, food, and many other products. They design processes and technology for large-scale sustainable manufacturing, to plan and test methods of manufacturing products and treating byproducts, and managing the production.Is there a demand forchemical engineers in the future?Chemical engineering is very important for the future because everything around you needed a chemical engineer in one or two steps in the process that went forth when it was being developed.They are also very flexible and diverse having a chemical engineering degree allows you many job opportunities in many different fields What kind of education is needed to become a chemical engineer?Chemical engineers will need a bachelor's degree from a program to gain entry into the profession. In order to become licensed, one must gain work experience and pass additional exams. For some positions, a graduate degree in chemical engineering may be will also have classes such as many laboratory sessions in engineering, physics and chemistry courses.
