The work of a chemical engineer is typically on a much larger scale than that of a chemist. For instance, chemical engineers tend to deal with problems in huge facilities such as industrial plants, while chemists tend to work at the bench or laboratory scale. Chemical engineers are involved at all stages of manufacturing from the design and construction of processes and equipment to the daily production of products, the maintenance of facilities, research on new products and perfecting or enhancement of processes.
