Chemical engineering is applied chemistry that focuses on using chemical reactions to produce useful materials and/or solve problems.
Do you look at products such as a canister of Pringles and wonder how they were produced? (After finishing it of course!) Do you enjoy learning and creating processes of turning one thing into something completely different? Do you go about a daily task by striving for the best possible result while trying to save as much money as you can? Then, perhaps Chemical Engineering is the career for you. Read on as we alter any misconceptions you’ve ever had about the profession.

Chemical Engineers are primarily concerned with the construction, operation, implementation and maintenance of chemical processes for macro-level manufactures such as large-scale cheese production.
With so many degree options out there, here are some top reasons why you should study Chemical Engineering:
A degree in Chemical Engineering can land you jobs in the manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, managerial and production areas easily. Basically, you can apply for any jobs that have something to do with chemicals.
Chemical Engineers strive to improve the quality of people’s lives and the ecosystem. The items people use every day; toothpaste, detergent, petrol, and even the things we eat, all need Chemical Engineers to produce them. Because of this, they are needed to facilitate the development of technologies that will help end starvation, disease, overcome lead pollution and the effects of greenhouse gases.

Important Note: If you opt to study a Diploma in Chemical Engineering and continue your degree at the same institution, you will most likely get a one-year exemption. This means that you can enter degree year 2 after diploma.
It is not necessary for you to do your postgraduate but becoming a professional engineer by registering at the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) will definitely help you advance in your career
You like math! You like chemistry! The only issue? You can’t choose which one you like more. Chemical engineers use numbers and knowledge of chemicals in almost equal parts, and of equal importance.
You’re the kind of person who notices the odd stain on an otherwise clean shirt or t-shirt and don’t want to wear on a date or an important meeting because even if they don’t notice, you’ll know! Suffice to stay, you pay attention to the smallest of details. In fact, the smaller the detail, the bigger the significance it has, to you at least.
When you’re headed out with friends, you know exactly how much you’re going to spend, and you try to have as much fun as possible within that same amount. They aim to get the best results at the least cost and with the lowest impact on the environment possible.
