In simple words, chemical engineering is a process of changing raw materials into products we use daily such as clothes, food, drinks, drugs, fertilizers, etc.
Chemical engineering involves applying chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics to either develop or create new products/materials, or improve existing processes.
This is a broad based engineering discipline as it is concerned with transforming one thing into another or creating useful materials that can help improve the society. This explains the high demand for chemical engineers across a variety of industries and professions
