Chemical engineers apply principles found in the STEM fields, including chemistry, biology, physics, and math, to solve problems in the production or use of products. They transform raw materials into practical, everyday items including food, clothing, drinks, or energy.
Chemical engineers apply their learned STEM-related skill sets across a spectrum of consumer and other sectors including technology, food and drink, recycling, or treating disease. Chemical engineers are also responsible for the design process and the equipment often used in large-scale manufacturing plant and pest production methods. With basic training in math, engineering, physics and in-depth knowledge and understanding of chemistry and biology, they also influence various areas of technology by rethinking design processes for production, transformation, and for the transportation of materials. Chemical engineers have a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering or related fields.
