Chemical engineering is the discipline where sciences are combined with applied mathematics and engineering principles. It takes laboratory ideas and turns them into value-added products in cost-effective, safe and cutting-edge processes for the chemical industry.
Some famous chemical engineers in history include John McKeen, who designed the first industrial-scale production of penicillin via deep-tank fermentation that saved thousands of soldiers’ lives during World War II; and Carl Bosch who
invented the Haber-Bosch process to produce ammonia, a critical ingredient in synthetic fertilisers that enable us to produce enough food to feed the Earth’s growing population.
