Does the chemical engineer have a broader field of work than a normal engineering job such as a civil, architectural, or mechanical engineer?

I would like to know how many different areas I can go with chemical engineering if one doesn't work after I get the degree. #engineering #chemical-engineering

Peter’s Answer

I cannot say for sure how broad the field of Chemical Engineering is. But I can tell you that Civil Engineering is a very broad Field. Major directions include structural engineering, water supply/wastewater, transportation engineering, environmental engineering and working for a town or city public works department. The opportunities are very broad.

As you can see from the two responses above, if you go into one of the four basic engineering fields (Chemical, Mechanical, Electrical or Civil) you will have a wide variety of jobs. If you go into more specialty engineering; aerospace, automotive, mining etc. you will have narrower job opportunities. Persue one of the four basic engineering field you have the most interested in. If you are interested in, and like, the particular field, you will be a better engineer. So go where your interest pull you!!! Good luck

I agree with the previous responses. The four major engineering majors are all broad and go across many industries. Choose the one you are most interested in..

M. A. Rafe’s Answer

Yes, chemical engineering is one of the most diverse field of engineering and arguably the most challenging. With a chemical engineering degree and some field work or extra specialized classwork, you could potentially work in various industries including petrochemical and biochemical, renewable energy, oil&gas, utilities, semiconductor and nanotechnology, polymers, biomedical, waste and environment, and energy storage like battery.
