Chemical engineering is a certain type of engineering which deals with the study of operation and design of chemical plants as well as methods of improving production. Chemical engineers develop economical commercial processes to convert raw material into useful products. They also work in the field, putting into practice the knowledge gained in laboratories, as well as their own brand of chemistry that applies the physical sciences and the life sciences.
They use mathematics and economics to create processes for converting raw materials or chemicals into forms that are more useful. Today’s chemical engineers are involved with biomedical engineering, nanotechnology, and fuel cells, to name a very few of their specialties!
In Chemical engineering, the cut-off point used in Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is aggregate ten(10). One can also apply as a fee-paying student.
With regards to the other requirements, it’s entry requirements is basically the cut off point and being a General science student in senior high school precisely a chemistry student with a good grade from A1 to C6.
There is quite a number of jobs that this degree will be useful. We have;
Waste management officer
Remember that many employers accept applications from graduates with any degree subject, so don’t restrict your thinking to the jobs listed here.
With regards to job opportunities directly related to chemical engineering. There are;
