Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering that applies physical sciences (such as chemistry and physics), along with life sciences (such as biology, microbiology and biochemistry) to the production, transformation and transport of chemicals, materials and energy. It is a multidisciplinary field that combines the principles of engineering with the principles of chemistry.
Chemical engineering is used in the design and operation of chemical plants and processes. It is also used in the development of new materials, such as polymers, pharmaceuticals, and biochemicals. Chemical engineers are involved in the production of a wide range of products, from food and beverages to petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals.
