Engineer: In Search of Creativity...!
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Faculty of Chemistry
Chemistry is a branch of physical science that studies the composition, structure, properties and change of matter. Chemistry includes topics such as the properties of individual atoms, how atoms form chemical bonds to create chemical compounds, the interactions of substances through intermolecular forces that give matter its general properties, and the interactions between substances through chemical reactions to form different substances. Chemistry is sometimes called the central science because it bridges other natural sciences, including physics & geology.

Chemical Engineering was originally developed for the production of chemicals on an industrial scale. However, from then to now, Chemical Engineering has sure come a long way. Today, other than chemicals, Chemical Engineering techniques are used for the production of usable, high quality products such as fibers, fabrics, paints, medical drugs, biomaterials, gasoline, lubricants etc used in various industries such as textile, food, plastics, automotive, aerospace, petroleum, oil and gas, biomedical, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, thereby increasing the scope of Chemical Engineering. Chemical engineers design, maintain and operate large scale machinery, industrial plants and chemical processes required for the production of various usable products as mentioned above. Therefore, this field is not just related to chemistry. In order to design the equipment and scale up the products from lab to industrial scale manufacturing, you will be studying a lot of concepts in physics, mathematics and economics as well.
India is home to some excellent programs in Chemical Engineering and some of the Indian institutions are world renowned for their work in Chemical Engineering. Since Chemical Engineering is based on the fundamentals of physics, mathematics and chemistry, students have to excel in the basics in order to grasp advanced Chemical Engineering concepts in college and further. In India, Chemical Engineering students either pursue higher studies or find jobs in sectors such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, oil and gas etc. upon completion of their Three Year Diploma Engineering / B. Tech degree.
