Communications Technology
Social Studies Post Secondary Education What Do Chemical Engineers Do? What is Chemical Engineering? Chemical engineering is applied physics
Using math, physics, and economics
Designing, constructing, and operating machines that carry out chemical reactions
Apply chemistry along with other engineering practices
Sometimes called "universal engineers" Make designs and invent new processes to create chemical reactions (e.g., refining oil)
Oversee construction, operation, and maintenance of instruments and facilities
Monitor processes at facilities
Develop atomic science, polymers, paper, dyes, drugs, plastics, fertilizers, foods, petrochemicals, and other products Some engineers can rise to management positions. This can require a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. Workplace Work for manufacturing companies
Manufacturing companies
Loud noise
Hazardous chemicals Senior and more advanced positions can require a master's degree or PhD. Title: Professional Engineer (P.Eng) Earnings Most chemical engineers earn between $45,000 and $130,000 annually
Average income is between $85,000 and $100,000 per year
More experienced engineers will have higher salaries
Specialists and managers can earn over $175,000 per year Characteristics Problem solver
Creative and inquisitive
Communication skills Learning Style I have a kinaesthetic learning style. Personality Quiz This will benefit me in my career because chemical engineering involves designing and building products and facilities. It also involves the maintenance and repair of machines. ...............Artistic: XXXXXXXXX
...Enterprising: XXXXXXX
............Realistic: XXXXXX
.................Social: XX
..Investigative: XXXXXXXXX
Conventional: XXXXXXX I am mostly artistic and investigative, which will help me as a chemical engineer. Chemical engineering is the practice of applying mathematics and physics to transform raw materials and chemicals into energy sources and products. In-School Career Opportunities Bachelor of Science in Engineering at Queen's University The energy SHSM St. Anne's offers would help me with my career path. Although it is not directly related to chemical engineering it would give me some experience in the field. Out-of-School Opportunities Visit the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station Job Trends Smaller, more specialized facilities
Biotechnology, nanotechnology, and microfabrification
Increase in safety
Environmental conscience / using waste as a source of energy In the future... I see myself going to university, possibly Queen's University, as it is a well-known institution for engineering. Once I graduate university I hope to to hired by a manufacturing company. I would like to develop new, environmentally friendly processes to create energy. References "Chemical Engineering."

This degree is a four-year program that requires credits in the areas of mechanics, chemistry, computers, physics, calculus, algebra, electricity, biochemistry, and magnetism Decision Making Model I chose this career because: I am interested in pursuing it
It applies knowledge of mathematics, physics, and science
It has a high salary
It does not require many different degrees in different areas
It has a variety of different work settings Left Brained or Right Brained? Results: 9 a's and 5 b's I somewhat prefer the left side of my brain. Personality Type: True Colour The colour that best suits me is curious green. This means I have the following characteristics: Intellectual
Analytical and conceptual
Values knowledge Strengths and needs Problem solver Sees the "big picture" Requires independence to work Needs to ask questions
