    Default Chemical Engineering

    Hi, may I know what is chemical engineering about? I am thinking of choosing this course to study in my uni. My concerns are what is the prospect of a chemical engineer. What is his job about.

    I know I may sound noob. But pls help to clarify my doubts.

    Thanks

    I am guessing.

    You will work in jurong island, at petrochemical plant either doing oil (or related to that), paint or plastic, these are basic chemistry.
    You may also work at cosmetic/shampoo/soap (they use a lot of chemicals) industry, you might be working for pharmaceudical company or even food company (colouring/preservatives/additives/artificial-flavouring), depending on what specialisation you have. These are more on specialized chemistry.

    Or... you might do water/industrial-waste treatment, recycling (but probably material engineering is more related to this).

    Doing all the processes? as in how to maximise production?

    sometimes it is basic stuff like qc. test sample all day every day...
    not all the time you get to do new stuff.

    I doubt you'll be doing all the processes technically and no,it's not just maximising production.
    My guess is that there will be more R&D to enforce product penetration.
    Once you grad with a degree,you'll be managing the production as a whole i believe..

    you do not necessarily have to do chemical engineering related jobs

    a lot of companies also accept chemical engineering, like investment banks, etc. though it may be a lot harder for a local chem engine graduate to enter good companies with the example just mentioned.. you'd be surprised at the number of jobs that accept a wide range of degrees.
