    Chemical engineers are responsible for the availability of modern high-quality materials that are essential for running an industrial economy.

    They design equipments and operate chemical plants as well as determine the problems and find the best methods of production.So, job prospectus and career options of a chemical engineer is varied.

    The scope for chemical engineers has grown in recent times due to industrial expansion and the related scarcity of resources needed.

    They are in demand as they work to create synthetic replacements for those natural materials and resources that are in short supply.

    Since chemical engineers make very important contributions for the improvement and maintenance of the quality of life they are in much demand in today's world.

    good luck !!!!

    Hi friend,

    Well i must admit that comparing two trades of Engineering is not fair at all so , i must say that practically both the trades are equal.

    But if you take in consideration factors like jobs and Demand by students Electrical outshines Chemical but i must again say that it solely depends upon your choice and your view. For example you think that you have good concept of Chemistry go for chemical and if you have good concept of electrical then go for Electrical.

    Scope of Chemical engineering :

    Chemical engineers are at demand in these Industries :

    >>Mineral-based industries
    >>Petrochemical plants
    >>Synthetic fiber units
    >>Petroleum refining plants
    >>Chemical industries
    >>Pharmaceutical companies
    >>Paints manufacturers
    >>Fertilizer industry
    >>Textiles sector
    >>Environment and eco- friendly indutries
    >>Fertilizer technology
    >>Paints and Dyes
    >>Recycling metals

    Scope of Chemical Engineering in India is growing as research organizations, laboratories, defence establishments, atomic power plants, and forensic investigation departments also need chemical engineering experts. So, there is no stooping to this thing even in future.

    Scope of Electrical Engineering :

    Electrical & Electronics Engineering is one of the core branches of engineering and thus it also provides an opportunity to work for government as Government employee as Engineer
    It's Importance is found in these subjects :

    >>Production,Utilization & Distribution of electrical energy
    >>manufacture of consumer electronics
    >>Electronic components
    >>Computer hardware
    >>Medical equipment
    >>Automation and control systems
    >>Private utility companies
    >>Companies manufacturing electrical appliances and instruments.

    Hope it helps!!

    Hey dear aspirant !
    Now days the Chemical Engineering stream is very demanding.This demand is not only in our country but also in Foreign.If we talk about the scope of any branch of engineering, then we can say that each branch has their own scope.Some branches has their world wide scope, and only a few has little less in comparison of others.As I told that Chem. engineering has a world wide scope.Chem. engineers play a key role in industries, mostly in the manufacturing field. Their work area varies from petroleum and petrochemicals to food, materials, specialty chemicals, plastics, power production, environmental control, waste management and biotechnology.Coal preparation and mineral processing, explosives manufacturing, chemical process industries such as fertiliser industry, including pesticides and herbicides, caustic soda, glass and specialty chemicals, dyes and dyestuff, paint, lubricants, steel and aluminum production are also comes in the field of chemical engineers.There are so many companies which offers the job opportunities for chemical engineer.Only job is not the option for them.You can also go for the higher studies.You can go for the research in this field.Each field has a very deep and unknown knowledge.Here from unknown knowledge I mean the knowledge about this stream which is still not known to the people.But if you don't want to go for the higher studies then you can directly go for the JOB.

    The scope of it is very high at coming days.

    Working Environment:

    Most chemical engineers work in manufacturing industries, in research and development
    labs, productions plants, or management.

    Some provide engineering services as consultants in research and testing, design,
    or policy.

    The environment and hours that they work varies with the industry and kind of job.
    Chemical engineers also work in a variety of manufacturing industries other than
    chemical manufacturing, such as those producing energy, electronics, food, clothing,
    and paper. They also work in health care, biotechnology, and business services.

    Some may specialize in a particular chemical process, such as oxidation or polymerization.

    Others specialize in a particular field, such as nanomaterials, or in the development of
    specific products.

    Job profile:

    Jobs for chemical engineering graduates will be available in mineral-based industries,
    petrochemical plants, synthetic fibre units and even in petroleum refining plants.

    You can find employment opportunities with chemical industries, refineries,
    manufacturers of acids, medicines, varnishes, paints, fertilisers, etc.

    Public sector organisations and private companies dealing in pharmaceuticals,
    synthetic fibres, textiles, plastics, explosives, etc. also recruit chemical engineers.

    You can even join research organisations and laboratories as technical experts on
    engineering projects.

    Typically a chemical Engineer has to study the following subjects:

    Chemical engineers are expected to have employment growth of 8 percent over the
    projections decade, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

    Although overall employment in the chemical manufacturing industry is expected
    to decline, chemical companies will continue to research and develop new
    chemicals and more efficient processes to increase output of existing chemicals.

    Pay Scale:

    Due to rapid industrialisation, chemical engineers have gained a position among the
    top money makers. The earnings depend on the industries employing chemical
    engineers such as Central or State government departments or private concerns.

    Working experience, qualifications, ability are important factors in determining the pay
    level. Those who are working in the private sector are well paid.

    Fresher’s can get a starting salary of Rs. 10000 to Rs. 12000 per month. In the government
    sector, the salary range of diploma holders is Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 9,000 per month.

    Since there are less colleges in India which offers Chemical Engineering In India as compared to other branches like CS,IT,EC etc. So the scope for jobs is very bright due to less competition.
    As you belong to this field so you might be knowing that chemical engineering is a branch which deals with synthesis and analysis of chemicals. You have opportunities in all those companies(irrespective of private and public) which are indulged into this business.

    In public sector they have opportunities in
    ~petroleum Industries,
    ~atomic Power Plants,
    ~ Health Related Research Institutes etc.
    Also you have scope as Chemical Engineers in departments which are mainly designed for solving various environmental issues like environmental pollution, waste treatment, protecting environmental regulations, recycling, and energy conservation from different energy sources.

    In the private sector, the nature of the job varies according to the industry they work.
    Like there are various industries-
    ~mineral-based industries,
    ~chemical industries,
    ~manufacturing industries etc.
    Some chemical engineers who are able to arrange some capital set up their own chemical industries.
