2 What do chemical engineers study? Chemical engineering uses chemistry, biology, and physics to solve different problemsSome problems involve the production of food, fuel, drugs, and chemicals etc.Chemical engineers design things for manufacturing at a large scale safely
3 What do chemical engineers study? cont. Chemical engineers will transform raw materials into products that we use all the time in our daily livesSome chemical engineers specialize in:Chemical manufacturingAdvanced materials manufacturingBiomedical engineeringpharmaceuticalsRenewable energyFood processing
4 What it’s like being a chemical engineer? Chemical Engineers mainly work in offices and in laboratoriesAs of 2010 the median pay was $90,300 a yearIn 2010 there was about 30,200 jobs in the U.S.Some chemical engineers travel constantly in and out of the U.S.They don’t have much on the job training for chemical engineers, if any at all
5 What it’s like being a chemical engineer Chemical engineering is dependent on the manufacturing of productsChemical engineering is a full time job for most people in this fieldSome chemical engineers spend a lot of time monitoring the operations and solving onsite problems
6 How do I become a chemical engineer You must have at least a bachelors degree in chemical engineeringThough it is not required they do recommend getting a license, to do this you must:Get a degree from an accredited engineering programPass two different examsAnd have chemical engineering work experienceSome important qualities are:TeamworkMath, deductive reasoning, and problem solving skills among many others
7 How to become a chemical engineer When in college, students must take math, physics, biology, and chemistrySome colleges offer hands on experience while studying chemical engineering
8 Achievements of chemical engineers Chemical engineers helped purify our drinking waterHelped with nuclear technologies developmentSome health technologies would be set back if it weren’t for chemical engineering
