Chemical Engineering deals with the design and maintenance of chemical plants and the development of chemical processes for converting raw materials or chemicals into valuable forms. Modern innovations like human genome project, genetic engineering, and DNA sequencing has changed the face how chemical engineering was earlier perceived. One can do an M.Tech in Chemical Engineering after BE/B.Tech.
Usually considered one of the most versatile of all the branches of engineering, Chemical Engineering deals with design, supervision, installation and operating of plants for manufacturing chemical products and introducing new methods of production. A chemical engineer translates processings in the lab into practical applications for the creation of products to maximise productivity and minimise costs. Chemical Engineering has made a scientific breakthrough by creating synthetic replacements for our limited natural materials and resources.
