What is a chemical engineer?

Chemical engineers apply their knowledge of chemistry, arithmetic, physics, and economics to solve practical problems with processing plants.

Chemical engineers devise processes, supervise construction of equipment, and oversee operations in plants that transform basic materials into more valuable end products.
