Chemical Engineer

What is a Chemical Engineer?

Chemical Engineers design and operate equipment and processes that bring about a change to physical matter. They take scientific principles and apply them to practical situations. Most chemical engineers work for large manufacturing and processing companies. They are responsible for designing, constructing, implementing, operating, and maintaining industrial equipment and processes in their companies’ plants. They may also get involved in new product development, safety testing, and environmental assessments.

Skills Required

Chemical Engineers should be creative, analytical, inquisitive and detail-oriented. They should be able to communicate well in writing, orally and be able to work well individually and as part of a team.

Educational Requirements

If you are interested in becoming a Chemical Engineer, you should take courses in chemistry, biology, physics, math and English. A bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering is the minimum requirement to get into this field. A master’s degree or PhD is often required for academic or advanced research and development positions. It is mandatory to attend University to get into this field. Mar 16, 2013Brandon Jaipersaud

Earnings
Earnings for a Chemical Engineer depend on many different factors including experience and level of education. Salaries for those with bachelor’s degrees are normally less than those with master’s degrees. Engineers with PhD’s earn the most. Most Chemical Engineers earn between $45,000 - $130,000 a year. The average income for people in this career is between $85,000 - $100,000 a year. Highly trained specialists and senior-level managers can earn over $175,000 a year.

Future Outlook

Employment of Chemical Engineers is expected to grow 6 percent from 2010 to 2020 which is slower than the average of all other occupations. Demand for Chemical Engineers largely depends on the demand for the products of various manufacturing industries. Employment is tied to the state of overall manufacturing in Canada and the U.S. However, Chemical Engineering is moving into new fields such as nanotechnology, alternative energies and biotechnology which will likely increase demand for engineering services in many manufacturing industries.
