What they do Chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry to solve problems involving the production or use of chemicals and other products. They design equipment and processes for large-scale chemical manufacturing, plan and test methods of manufacturing products and treating byproducts, and supervise production.
Examples of jobs a chemical engineers might do Manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, design and construction, petrochemicals, food processing, specialty chemicals, biotechnology, and environmental health and safety industries.
