Task 2 : Chemical Engineer

Chemical engineer, also known as process engineer, is a proffession whose job is converting raw materials to products using facilities and equipments which gives benefit to human. They are engineers who apply chemical reaction in industrial scale. They have to master mathematic, physic, chemistry, biology, and some fundamental topics of chemical engineering which are fluid mechanics, heat transfer, mass transfer, reaction engineering, process control, materials and corrosion, and economics which are completing each other when being applied. In practice, chemical engineer handles processes so each process will produce maximum result with the lowest cost, giving the highest benefit for their companies. Some chemical engineers easily fit jobs which are not related to their study because they are educated and trained a systematic way of thinking.
