Chemical Engineering is a discipline that combines chemistry, physics and engineering to solve problems involving the use or production of chemicals to develop new materials and processes and to increase efficiency and lower cost.

Chemical engineers design processes and equipment for large-scale manufacturing, plan and test production methods and byproducts treatment, and direct facility operations.
