The global chemical industry produces thousands of products that are required today. Chemical engineers deal with a variety of areas: energy (power plants, renewable, solar), water treatment (desalination, wastewater treatment), polymers, microelectronics, nanotechnology, pharmaceutical and biotechnology, petrochemicals, security, environmental quality and more. Chemical Engineers are involved in related processes from initial design to the finished product. Change is at the heart of chemical engineering. Following basic science courses, with a strong emphasis on mathematics, physics, and chemistry, the program provides a broad education in process fundamentals that includes material and energy balances, thermodynamics, and transport phenomena. Finally, the students are directed to integrative courses that cover process and plant designs as well as those that deal with specific environmental problems and appropriate technologies for treating them. The chemical engineering program at GTIIT emphasizes environmental technologies. This enables the graduate engineer to deal with technologies for the abatement of water, air, or soil pollutants and preventing the deterioration of environmental quality.
Career opportunities for chemical engineers are broad and include management of factories or chemical plants; planning chemical or biochemical processes and plants; supervising production plant teams; simulating processes to improve their output and control their effects on the environment. The graduate engineer can work in the above-mentioned industries or in engineering design offices or governmental regulatory bodies. Chemical engineers trained in this program will be able to design and implement processes that will prevent environmental pollution, operating on the premise that it is more cost-effective and better to prevent environmental harm by advanced planning, rather than repairing damages.
