Process or product in chemical engineering?

I am currently looking for a job but I intend on pursuing my higher studies in Chemical Engineering.
After all my research online, I am still unsure of whether I should do my research work on the process side or the product side. Does a process engineer have to work only in the R&D department? I aim at working for an industry and not delving too much into the research side. So does that clearly mean i have to stick to the process side?

I feel you first have to get clarity about process side and product side as mentioned by you 

I would like to know what you have in mind  when you mention these two aspects before I answer your question

Also I want you to find out the difference between engineering and technology as applicable to chemical engineering Once you are clear, you would get your answer automatically or else I will be glad to explain to you the difference and what these two have in store

Hope you will research and come back

Till then so long----
