Chemical engineers are in demand as consultants, advisors, and managers of many private and public enterprises – also in nonchemical fields of work.
As chemical engineer you are trained to handle assignments wherever chemical processes play a role in private and public enterprises – from production of cement and chocolate through slippery roads to cleaner emission, etc.
You could, for example, find employment in:
- the chemical industry
- the food or medical industries
- environmental administrations
As a chemical engineer you are qualified for work in:
- planning and operation of large production plants
- management of laboratories
- environmental management and quality control.
Thus, chemical engineers hold jobs which require much in terms of cooperation skills, overview, management competences and good appreciation of economics.
