Chemical engineers design equipment and develop processes for the manufacture of chemicals in chemical plants. They plan and test methods of manufacturing products and supervise their production.

A graduate degree in a respective field, i.e., Bachelor in Engineering (B.E.)/Bachelor in Technology (B.Tech.) courses is the minimum requirement to enter this field. Admission to these four-year courses in different colleges/institutes is made on the basis of admission tests for which the basic eligibility is 10+2 with physics, chemistry and mathematics. These tests evaluate students’ aptitude, ability, knowledge and application of the subjects.
