    Chemical Engineers and Chemistry in Everyday Life

    Have you ever imagined how important is the chemical engineers and chemistry in our day-to-day life. Can you recall a day in your life in which you havenít used any single chemical. We are all made of chemicals and everything around us is also made of chemicals.

    Basically chemical engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the natural sciences and life sciences together with mathematics and economics to produce, transform, transport, and properly use chemicals, materials and energy.

    It also deals with the engineering of chemicals, energy and the processes that create and/or convert them. Modern chemical engineers are concerned with processes that convert raw materials chemicals into more useful or valuable forms.

    This chemical engineer plays a very important role in our daily life. Right from the very moment a person wake up in the morning they seek the help of chemical engineers and chemical. People usually start his day with brushing of teeth which need a tooth paste which is a chemical and a product of chemical engineer. Everything we see, touch, smell, eat and touch involves chemistry and chemical.

    Be it, a cup of coffee or detergent to wash clothes or extraction of crude oil, or design of heat exchangers or pharmaceutical products will always be incomplete without the help of chemical engineers.

    Most of the changes which we observe in the world around are caused by chemical reactions. Chemistry is not limited to the beakers and laboratory but its present in every aspect of life.

    Chemical engineering on the other hand is also a huge earning career. By the end of final year, students will be exposed to chemicals, polymers, petroleum, pharmaceuticals along with computer and information technology for the development of chemical engineering processes. There are good amount of opportunities for chemical engineering students, they are hired mostly by pharmaceutical, polymer and petroleum companies.

    ONGC, Reliance Industries Ltd., Essar Oil Limited, Gujarat Gas Company Limited, Indo Gulf Fertilizers Ltd, Coromandel Fertilizers Limited. Along with these there are number of research and development opportunities for chemical engineering students and renumuration may range from $1000~$1500 and $1800~$2500 for Phd and postdoc (research position after PhD) for chemical engineering students.
