Well Son, I am a Chemical Engineer for the Local perfume company. This means that I am in charge of producing the chemicals needed to make perfume.
Hey dad, I was wondering If you could tell me what you do for a living. Tomorrow is careers day at school and I need to explain to the class what my dad does for work.
Basically, my job as a Chemical Engineer for the perfume company is to efficiently synthesise a number of different compounds which are then placed together in order to form perfume.
Can you elaborate on that Dad?
Well son, it all started in High school. I always knew I like chemistry because of the problem solving aspect, a quality that is essential for chemical engineers. I also like solving problem involving complex mathematical equations.Moreover, I was also always interested in how different objects functioned. I put two and two together and realised that I wanted a career that allowed me to apply principles of Chemistry and engineering, thus I choose Chemical Engineering, a branch of engineering that focuses on the chemical aspect of a product.
So how did you become a Chemical Engineer dad?
To answer you question further let me talk about the qualifications required by sharing my path. As I told you I took Chemistry and Calculus. This built my base in problem solving. I also took physics, which I believe is what built my base in abstract thinking, a very important quality required by Chemical Engneers as synthesising chemicals does not always go to plan.
One I reached University, I had to expand my base. I took courses in both chemistry and engineering. I took courses such as organic chemistry, which revolves around carbon based compounds. I also took physical chemistry which look at the behaviour of particles in a chemical setting. In addition basic courses such as calculus were also required. After 4 years of these courses, I obtained my bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering, which allowed me get the job I currently have.
Sure son! I believe the greatest skills required by Chemical Engineers include: Organisation, since multiple chemicals need to be handled, problem solving skills, since synthesising chemical is not always straight forward and work ethic as a certain quantity of a product must be made in a specific time frame. I believe these are the skill needed in order to be a successful Chemical Engineer.
Thanks For the Help dad. By the way, are their any specific skills you have that help you on the job.
