Chemical Engineering provides technical expertise in the field of chemistry, biochemistry, engineering, materials science and information technology which helps to change raw materials into valuable products on an industrial scale. Chemical engineering works in the direction of saving the environment by developing alternative technologies to combat acid rain, lead pollution and the greenhouse effect. It is concerned with PROCESSES and PRODUCTS.
Chemical engineers are in great demand because of the large number of industries that depend on the synthesis and processing of chemicals and materials. A graduate might perform groundbreaking scientific research, work as a field engineer or occupy a senior management position. In addition to traditional careers in the chemical, energy and oil industries, chemical engineers enjoy increasing opportunities in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, electronic device fabrication and environmental engineering.
L.D.C.E. is a Co-Anchor Institute for Chemicals & Petrochemicals sector.
