Why study Chemical Engineering and Technology?

Lisa 2020-12-07 82

We all know that you need to choose a suitable major for yourself before entering the university. If you don't know how to choose a suitable major, you can choose one according to your own hobbies or areas of expertise. There are many disciplines and majors in the university to choose from. And many engineering majors require strong practical skills. If you have strong practical skills, studying chemical engineering and technology will be a good choice for you. Because you will do frequent chemical experiments, which is a test of your operation ability.


Chemical engineering and technology major studies the general principles and physical processes of chemical and physical in the production process of other process industries such as petroleum refining industry, metallurgical industry, food industry, printing and dyeing industry, etc. It is an engineering discipline that applies these laws to solve the problems of process and device development, design, operation and optimization.


This major focuses on large-scale changes in the chemical composition of materials and their mechanical and physical properties. It is applied to the chemical industry based on mathematics and a small amount of physical concepts to provide the most cost-effective reaction process design method for factories that produce various chemicals or materials. Experimental research, theoretical analysis and scientific calculation have become the three main methods indispensable in contemporary chemical research.

The training goal of this major is to enable graduates to have broad theoretical basic knowledge and be familiar with the professional principles, professional skills and research methods of chemical production technology. Graduates should also be able to engage in product research and development, device design, production process control and production process control in the process industry.

The basic requirements for graduates of this major are:

(1) Have a strong sense of social responsibility and good scientific literacy.

(2) Have strong self-study ability, expression and communication skills, and the ability to deal with practical engineering problems.

(3) To systematically master the basic theories and professional knowledge of chemical engineering and technology, be able to combine the socio-economic goals of chemical production and engage in research, development, design, production and business management.

(4) Full of truth-seeking spirit, innovative spirit, cooperative spirit and adaptability, with certain international communication ability.

(5) Master a foreign language proficiently and pass the National Foreign Language Test Band IV.

(6) Have basic skills in using computers.

Research directions:

1. Chemical separation project:

This direction mainly engaged in the research of new separation technology process and equipment, traditional chemical separation technology improvement, separation technology coupling, etc. At present, special research directions are formed in the extraction and separation of effective ingredients from natural plants, the extraction and separation of effective ingredients from traditional Chinese medicine and membrane separation technology and equipment.

2. Green chemical process:

This direction mainly engaged in the research and development of green reaction process, environmentally friendly new molecules and new materials, reaction and separation integrated technology. The direction does research on the properties of starting materials and products of green chemical processes. At present, technical research and development have been carried out in the aspects of photocatalytic degradation technology, clean reaction processing technology, green separation technology, environmentally friendly tannery and clean chemical innovation technology.

3. New chemical materials:

The research direction is a multidisciplinary field, mainly engaged in the research and development of new energy chemical materials and new chemical separation materials. At present, research has been carried out in the design, preparation, characterization and application of porous inorganic organic. It provides an effective way to quickly solve the bottleneck or disconnection between basic research and industrialization in the field of new chemical materials.

4. Catalytic technology and application:

Catalytic technology is of great significance in the national economy. Many challenges faced by contemporary mankind, such as energy development, the comprehensive utilization of natural resources, the development of new materials, and the solution of major issues in environmental protection. They all rely on catalytic processes to varying degrees. This direction mainly focuses on the design and preparation of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts and enzyme catalysts and their application research in organic synthesis and fine chemical synthesis.

5. Fine Chemical Chemistry and Technology:

Fine chemicals refer to chemical products with specific functions, technology intensive, extensive use of compound technology, small batches of multiple varieties and high added value. Fine chemical chemistry and technology, as a research direction of applied chemistry, is based on chemistry, chemical industry, petroleum, light industry and material chemistry. This research direction not only attaches importance to the research of modern synthetic new theories and new technologies, but also attaches importance to their applications, with distinctive light industry characteristics.

6. Environmental pollutant control chemistry and technology:

This direction is mainly engaged in the control chemistry research and process technology development of chemical pollutants in water, focusing on the chemical principles and process conditions of using photochemistry, electrochemistry, sonochemistry and other chemical and physical methods to decompose organic pollutants in water. It is a high pollution and micro pollution industry.

Practical teaching:

1. Electrician internship

Conduct practical training on the use of common electrician tools, lighting, internal and external wiring and cable installation, installation of switches, relays, control panels, and handling of control loop failures.

2. Metalworking practice

Make students familiar with the basic knowledge of mechanical manufacturing technology and understand the knowledge of mechanical processing equipment, tools, and operational safety. Strengthen the ability to practice, analyze and solve problems, accept the cultivation of ideological style, and lay the necessary foundation for future work.

3. Organic Synthesis Practice

Organic synthesis practice is part of the practical training of professional basic courses. The purpose is to train students to have a rational understanding and understanding of typical operations and typical reactions in organic reactions. Its task is to enable students to learn how to handle chemicals, cultivate students' experimental skills and techniques, and use conventional instruments proficiently.

4. Chemical engineering practice

The main content includes the synthesis and application of surfactants, the synthesis of chemical intermediates, the synthesis of adhesives, the formulation of coatings, the formulation of cosmetics, the synthesis of industrial additives, etc. Students should master laboratory synthesis and compounding technology and combine the industrial equipment of the practice base to understand the development.

5. Production practice

Through on-site visits, listening to first-line engineering and technical personnel, and management personnel to explain, students can initially obtain the industry characteristics, enterprise viewing, enterprise management status, product types, production equipment types, raw material characteristics, process technical characteristics, etc.

Employment prospects:

The professional employment rate of chemical engineering and technology is relatively high. Graduates are generally engaged in technology research and development, production management, sales and other related jobs in chemical, oil refining, metallurgy, light industry, medicine, environmental protection, new energy and other industries. The positions include process engineer, R&D engineer, chemical process engineer, chemical engineer, reserve cadre, technician, lithium battery process engineer etc.
