Introduction to Chemical Engineering Course:
This post is all about insights on Chemical Engineering Course and its related details. Chemical Engineering is a science where you deal in designing large-scale processes that convert chemicals, raw materials, living cells, microorganisms and energy into useful forms and products.
Chemical Engineer utilizes physical sciences (physics and chemistry) and life sciences (microbiology and biochemistry) together with applied mathematics.
Chemical engineering came into limelight upon the development of unit operations which is the fundamental concept of chemistry.
Note: Unit operations (such as crystallization, filtration, drying and evaporation) are used to prepare reactants, purifying and separating its products, recycling unspent reactants, and controlling energy transfer in reactors
You need to deal with subjects like Chemical reaction engineering, Plant design, Process engineering, Transport phenomena, Process design.
In order to pursue engineering course in chemical you need to have passion towards developing a new product using different chemical, understanding the deeper picture of each and every element, etc.
Chemical engineering design concerns the creation of plans, specification, and economic analyses for pilot plants, new plants or plant modifications.
“Chemical Engineers are not gentle people, they like high temperatures and high pressures.”
