The modern discipline of chemical engineering is intertwined with biology and biomedical engineering in order to solve complex problems in a wide variety of industries. Chemical engineers apply chemistry, physics and mathematics to the process of converting raw materials and chemicals into more useful or valuable forms. They are engaged in the development and production of a diverse range of products including high-performance materials for aerospace, automotive, biomedical, electronic, environmental and military applications.
Chemical engineers are involved in the manufacturing of a wide variety of products including plastics, petroleum products, pharmaceuticals, computer chips, specialty chemicals and bioproducts. In the environmental area, chemical engineers develop methods to reduce the pollution created in manufacturing processes, devise techniques to recover usable materials from wastes, design waste storage and treatment facilities, and design pollution control strategies.
