The term "chemical engineer" is not intended to describe the type of work a chemical engineer performs. Instead it is meant to reveal what makes the field different from the other branches of engineering . All engineers employ mathematics, physics, and the engineering art to overcome technical problems in a safe and economical fashion . Yet, it is the chemical engineer alone that draws upon the vast and powerful science of chemistry to solve a wide range of problems . The strong technical and social ties that bind chemistry and chemical engineering are unique in the fields of science and technology. The breadth of scientific and technical knowledge inherent in the profession has caused some to describe the chemical engineer as the " universal engineer ." Despite a title that suggests a profession composed of narrow specialists, chemical engineers are actually extremely versatile and able to handle a wide range of technical problems. So What is a (Bio)Chemical Engineer?
