Chemical Engineering Technology
Chemical Engineering Technology focuses on the handling, analysis, monitoring, properties and processing of a wide variety of materials such as chemicals, compounds, pastes, petroleum derivatives, mining ores, pharmaceuticals, gas products and more. Chemical reactions and properties are examined on a small scale and then applied to real-world industrial settings. Chemical Engineering involves chemical exchanges between substances when raw materials are turned into products. It also investigates the nature of chemical reactions and involves process and equipment optimization commissioning and design, trouble shooting and problem solving.
