Chemical business ideas are opportunities for people who are interested in chemistry so to say. Every year, a lot of students who study chemistry or chemical engineering and because there are no job opportunities provided for them, they end up getting involved in other fields that are not in any way related to what they studied in school. This does not only affect chemistry alone but cut across every field. This is the reason why most students while at the university have the mentality that what they are studying in school is not what the will end up practicing at the end of the day.

Student Links. Chemical engineering combines a multi-disciplinary branch of engineering. It is involved in the research, design, development, construction, modification and operation of industrial processes and machinery that turn raw materials into valuable products. Like all engineers, chemical engineers combine natural and experimental sciences such as chemistry and physics , along with life sciences such as biology, microbiology and biochemistry with the addition of mathematics and economics to develop new or adapt substances for a wide range of products. Depending on their specific role, chemical engineers might be researching and developing new products from trial to commercialization, managing processes from testing in a small plant to full industrial-scale manufacturing, developing improvements to product lines, modifying processing plants, and designing and commissioning new plants.

Project Brief:. The new Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology Building was built to promote collaboration and interdisciplinary working among research groups, researchers and students. The new building is the first to facilitate collaboration between undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers through the whole cycle of scientific investigation. The building features a wide range of biological laboratories to Bio Safety Levels Two and Three, cleanrooms, sensitive laser, optics and imaging laboratories, a Magnetic Resonance Research Centre, materials and processes laboratories and an undergraduate teaching laboratory. The undergraduate teaching facilities support these laboratories through dedicated spaces that include two seat lecture theatres, a postgraduate open plan researcher write-up space, and academic and administrative offices.
