Typical employers - Chemical engineering

Employers are as diverse as the products they produce and cover a broad range of industrial sectors. Any company involved in large-scale conversion of raw materials into a product will require chemical development engineers.
You'll find major employers in gas and oil extraction, oil refining, nuclear and other power generation and other process industries, including pharmaceuticals, fine and heavy chemicals and agrochemicals. Other manufacturing industries that need chemical engineers include those supplying:
  • food and drink;
  • toiletries;
  • pulp and paper;
  • plastic and metals;
  • fibres and polymers.
Many chemical development engineers work for engineering consultancy and contracting firms. Engineers are well equipped for business roles and go into careers in financial services, management or law.

Thinking about a career in chemical engineering?

As a chemical engineer, you will need:
  • to work as part of a team, and have good social skills
  • excellent problem-solving and analytical skills (plus a dose of imagination!) to overcome stiff challenges
  • to be highly IT literate, as much of your work will rely on using computers
