Abstract: Chemical engineering is very diverse field. It has wide scope in terms of applications and understanding. A chemical engineer needs the sound knowledge of chemistry. In addition to this, a good chemical engineer has sound knowledge of mathematics, numerical methods, hydraulics, strength of materials, electrical engineering and material science. Multitasking is commonly used word in the industries. An engineer is recognized for his ability to trouble shoot problems in the industries. It is envisaged that the chemical engineering student acquire the knowledge of science and mathematics along with fundamentals of electrical, civil and mechanical engineering. This article sheds light on multidisciplinary nature of expectations from chemical engineering.
