My Future Job Chemical Engineer


Published on

This is a project we did earlier this year. I don't really want to be a chemical engineer anymore, but this slide show is still pretty cool.

My Future Job Chemical Engineer

  1. 1. My Future Job: Chemical Engineer Dictionary Definition: An engineer that deals with the industrial applications of chemistry and chemical processes By: Meghan McLeroy
  2. 2. What is involved in the work? <ul><li>When you are a chemical engineer, you handle chemicals and try to solve problem using math and science. If your favorite subjects are math and science, chemical engineering might be a good career for you. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Where does the work take place? <ul><li>When you are a chemical engineer, you usually work in one of three places: in a laboratory, in an office, or in a manufacturing plant. </li></ul>
  4. 4. What are the working conditions? <ul><li>Chemical engineers have 8 to 9 hour work days and 40 to 50 hour work weeks. Chemical engineering is relatively safe, but sometimes it involves working with hazardous chemicals. </li></ul>
  5. 5. What type of training is needed to enter the field? <ul><li>To be a chemical engineer, you need a bachelor’s degree. In high school, you should take chemistry, math, physics, and English as your four core classes. </li></ul>
  6. 6. What are the possibilities of moving to a higher position? <ul><li>After three years, you are usually promoted to an intermediate engineer position, and after five years, you are usually promoted to a senior engineer position. </li></ul>
  7. 7. What can you expect to earn when you start? <ul><li>You can expect to make at least $60,000 a year, which is higher than the average amount recent college graduates receive. </li></ul>
  8. 8. What are your future prospects of the job? Is the field growing? <ul><li>There is a high possibility that I will get a job. The number of chemical engineers is growing about as fast as the average. Also, if you’re good at what you do and you’re a girl, the chances that they will hire you are higher. </li></ul>
  9. 9. How do you use writing and/or reading skills in this field? <ul><li>You use reading to read experiment directions, labels on chemicals, and much more. You use writing to record the steps you took to solve a problem, the results of an experiment, which chemical you used, and more! </li></ul>
  10. 10. In Conclusion… <ul><li>Chemical engineering would be a great job for me because I like math, science, and problem solving. In chemical engineering, you get to do all of those things plus you get to participate in science experiments and projects! </li></ul>
