Nov 3, 2014 16:01 IST

    Introduction:

    ChemicChemical Engg.al Engineering is one of the oldest engineering branches. Chemical Engineering deals with the designing, construction, installation and operation of plants and machines for producing chemical product. Basically Chemical Engineering is applied chemistry. IT is the branch of engineering that applies the physical sciences (chemistry and physics) together with mathematics and technology to produce chemicals, materials and energy. One of the greatest breakthroughs in Chemical Engineering is the creation of synthetic replacements for our limited natural materials and resources. Chemical engineering involves in the manufacturing of plastic, paints, fuels, fibers, medicines, fertilizers, semiconductors, paper etc. The main focus areas of chemical engineering are:

    • Catalysis and reaction engineering
    • Inorganic membranes
    • Materials for fuel cells
    • Sustainable and green engineering
    • Environmental performance assessment
    • Water purification

    Courses Available:
    Undergraduate:
    To pursue an undergraduate course in chemical engineering, the candidate must pass 10+2 with physics, chemistry and mathematics/biology from a recognized state/central Board.

    • Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering (B.E.)
    • Bachelor of Technology in Chemical Engineering (B.Tech.)
    • Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering (B.Sc.)

    Post Graduate:
    To pursue a postgraduate course in chemical engineering, the candidate must have Bachelor’s (B.E. or B.Tech.) degree in chemical engineering from recognized  University.

    • Master of Engineering in Chemical Engineering (M.E.)
    • Master of Technology in Chemical Engineering (M.Tech.)
    • Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (M.Sc.)
    • Integrated five year M.Tech in Chemical Engineering

    Others:
    Diploma in Chemical Engineering

    Job Opportunities:
    Chemical engineers mostly hired in the industries manufacturing field. Their work area includes petroleum and petrochemicals, food, materials, specialty chemicals, plastics, power production, environmental control, waste management and biotechnology. There is always a large number of vacancies await for the chemical engineers in the public as well as in the private sector. Other than their traditional industries, the chemical engineers can seek jobs in the areas like processing, operations or manufacturing, research and development, construction and teaching. These engineers are also employed in the scientific research and development industries like energy generation, biotechnology, biochemical and nanotechnology. The package for the fresher ranges from INR 10, 000 to INR 25, 000 per month.
