Chemical engineering jobs Cape Town

What is a chemical engineer?

The field of chemical engineering impacts several subfields of engineering. Chemical engineers, in the broadest sense, are responsible for the conception and design of processes for the production, transformation, and transportation of materials, beginning with laboratory testing and ending with the implementation of the technology in large-scale manufacturing.

Industrial and product creation are both within the purview of chemical engineers. Manufacturing and processing chemicals requires the development of specialized machinery, systems, and procedures.

Chemical engineers are responsible for taking laboratory-developed processes and adapting them to industrial settings, where they are then maintained and continuously improved. Math, physics, and chemistry are the backbone on which they build their engineering expertise. There is also a growing role for biology.

Employment opportunities in the chemical engineering sector in Cape Town

When you apply for Chemical engineering jobs in Cape Town, you’ll help diverse sectors manufacture safe and effective goods by designing and developing chemicals and planning for how they interact in different conditions.

For example, they could develop safeguards to reduce the likelihood of unintended chemical reactions, devise strategies to dispose of chemical waste, and optimize the process to save energy.

Chemical engineers may collaborate with chemists to develop a safe new product, or they may supervise the design of industrial chemical equipment developed by other engineers.

The majority of a chemical engineer's career is spent in an office or a laboratory. Engineers working in offices may never come into contact with the chemicals they use in their job and must rely instead on their considerable knowledge of these substances and their interactions with the environment.

Chemical engineers who work in laboratories often get more hands-on experience with chemicals than their industrial counterparts, however they still often focus more on the design and calculation aspects of research than on actual chemical experiments.

Chemical engineers can find work in a wide variety of sectors, each of which has its own unique set of challenges and opportunities. Included among these sectors are:

  • Food manufacturing
  • Cosmetics manufacturing
  • Pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing
  • Pharmaceutical research
  • General chemical research
  • Plastics engineering
  • Nanotechnology or nanomaterials
  • Technology manufacturing
  • Fuel engineering
