Chemical Engineering was originally developed for the production of chemicals on an industrial scale. However, from then to now, Chemical Engineering has sure come a long way. Today, other than chemicals, Chemical Engineering techniques are used for the production of usable, high quality products such as fibres, fabrics, paints, medical drugs, biomaterials, gasoline, lubricants etc used in various industries such as textile, food, plastics, automotive, aerospace, petroleum, oil and gas, biomedical, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, thereby increasing the scope of Chemical Engineering. Chemical engineers design, maintain and operate large scale machinery, industrial plants and chemical processes required for the production of various usable products as mentioned above. Therefore, this field is not just related to chemistry. In order to design the equipments and scale up the products from lab to industrial scale manufacturing, you will be studying a lot of concepts in physics, mathematics and economics as well. India is home to some excellent programs in Chemical Engineering and some of the Indian institutions are world renowned for their work in Chemical Engineering. Since Chemical Engineering is based on the fundamentals of physics, mathematics and chemistry, students have to excel in the basics in order to grasp advanced Chemical Engineering concepts in college and further. In India, Chemical Engineering students either pursue higher studies or find jobs in sectors such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, oil and gas etc. upon completion of their B.Tech degree.The 10 private chemical engineering colleges in India are:
