Chemical engineering is a very valuable skill out there in the business world, especially now in our energy obsessed economy. There are a lot of things you can do with chemicals. For one, if you put a base and an acid together, they blow up. Also, did you know water boils? It’s true! But yeah, basically what a Chemical Engineer does is goes uses chemicals to make certain raw substances into other substances that can be more easily utilized for whatever purpose. Probably the most obvious example of this is oil refineries, where raw crude oil is taken and refined into many different forms, such as propane, gasoline, kerosene, and petroleum jelly.
