    Hi, I am an university freshman in Canada majoring in Chemistry. At first, I chose chemistry because I want to go to med school but since I went to a nanotechnology conference, I have been wanting to be a nanoengineer instead. Now my question comes in: do you think Chemistry is a good major for engineering school? The graduate engineering programs I am interested in are Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Robotics Engineering and ...

    The branches you are interested in would require a strong mathematical background along with physics and chemistry. Chemistry alone is not sufficient. You need math and physics as one has to model process with mathematical equations, algorithms etc even ...

    Hi All, I received a bachelors degree in chemistry with an emphasis in Biochemistry a little over 2 years ago. Because of the emphasis in Biochemistry I didn't take calculus 3, or physical chemistry. My current job is working with medical devices in an Analytical R&D lab. In this job I've worked with a lot of chemical engineers while helping to improve and design new products and I've realized that is what I would really like to be doing. With this experience is there a way to get a MS in ...

    Calculus and P chemistry are needed for a student of chemical engineering specially when the engineering principles have to be applied in designing a process and not just equipments

    Hello, I have pursued my degree in Chemical Engineering, and worked in a small factory as a Process Engineer. I had joined as a trainee but had to do all alone without proper guidance. Still have leadership quality so I enjoyed the work and earned well. But the problem started with hazardous chemicals and lack of procedure explain as well as safety measures. Henceforth, I have left the job due to lack of any guidance after 5.5 months. Now, am trying in well developed companies but in which ...

    Hi, I am Vidhi. I basically want to know whether girls should really opt for chemical engineering? I have heard that chemical engineers have to work in shift and many of them claim that chemical engineering does not have lots of scope in India. Even people say that I would get exposed to strong chemicals and would fall ill frequently. But I really want to pursue chemical engineering. I have good aptitude for math and chemistry. Please give the necessary guidance.

    Hi, I am Raksha . I have written my Jee Main and Hsc this year. I am confused between chemical engineering and computer science. I have an interest in chemistry particularly. Could you please advise me regarding the job prospects, pay and type of work that needs to be done in chemical engineering. Also, can one have a desk job or is it all factory based? And is it suitable for girls? Thanks.

    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?

    Hi...I'll be going college this year and I wanna take civil engineering. I've always been fascinated with buildings and designing and the science behind it. I saw my dad doing it and wanted to do it. But lately people are really scaring me. I'm an average student so I'm average in maths and physics. And I'm a girl so everyone is like, "you won't be able to handle the pressure and it'll be field job. You'll lose your fair skin. No one will marry you," kinda crap. In India its a big ...

    Hi. I am going to pursue my undergraduate next year. After narrowing down I got down to three fields, IT, comp and chem engineering. I have always been a student who loves science and maths. I’m good at both. Computer is something I’m learning and though I kind of like it not love it, I am doing well. I’m wondering which career to choose. I like chem and maths but there's not much scope in India, the salary is low, and also I’ve heard it’s a dangerous field. People get burnt and other things ...

    I am currently studying diploma in Chemical engineering. However, I’m constantly worried that as a skinny, underweight and short girl, I would not be able to cope with the physically demanding work of chemical engineering. Also, I may not even get through job interviews as the employers may feel that I am too weak for such work. In Singapore, even if one has a bachelor degree in chemical engineering, one usually has to begin as a chemical technician and do manual work in plants quite often. I ...
