5 powerhouse reasons to study chemical engineering

Free Malaysia Today | February 11, 2019

Engineering is a term that comprises a wide range of applied science and technology branches such as chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering. To become an engineer, a bachelor’s degree in engineering is a prerequisite. Many jobs in engineering also require advanced degrees, and the engineer to become professionally registered with the Board of Engineers or Engineering Council.
Chemical engineers are able to make life easier and better for others. Most items used in our everyday life are produced by the processes designed and developed by chemical engineers. These processes include the making of foods, pharmaceuticals, fuels, plastics, vehicles, cloth, construction materials, waste treatment, and many more. Engineers can help to end starvation, disease, and poverty.
