Chemical Product Engineers apply a commercial lens to their deep knowledge of chemical engineering by asking the question, “How can I assemble complex new materials and breakthrough technologies, which are currently too scarce or expensive to use, into innovative, value-added commercial products?”
Chemical product engineers love understanding product function and performance as well as how people use and perceive those products. They never stop innovating to envision completely new products and functions that benefit society and their company’s bottom line.
Food scientists study everything to do with food from the flavours and nutrition content to product development, consuer appeal, food storage and safety.
Food Science could involve enhancing the taste, making it last longer or even making sure it’s safe to eat.
The discipline ‘chemical engineering’ is often used to describe a really broad area of engineering. It’s hardly surprising then that chemical engineers are known as ‘universal engineers’.
Interested in becoming a chemical engineer? Great choice! But to be sure, there are some things you should know about chemical engineering.
