Engineering in China

Chemical Engineering Internship in China

Chemicals are used in almost every industry. They benefit consumer goods, construction, food, transportation, and manufacturing to name a few. The chemical industry uses raw materials such as fossil fuels, air, water, limestone, salt, and others to develop a variety of derivative products. The chemical industry spends most of their budgets in research and development of new products. The chemical industry is sometimes categorized into four parts: heavy inorganic, fertilizers, halogens, and organic chemicals.

China uses up to one third of the world’s chemicals and as a result the Chinese government is hoping to become more self-sufficient in this area as it currently is very dependent on several developed countries for supply. China has been growing in various chemical areas such as petrochemicals, polymers and specialty chemicals. 

China’s chemical market is extremely fragmented and will likely consolidate in the near future. This will allow the industry to achieve better economies of scale and improve the technology and equipment being used in the industry. Larger companies are also able to attract top talent from around the world. This expertise is what will truly allow China to become self-sufficient in this field.

Responsibilities of Chemical Engineering Internship

  • Assist in testing and maintenance of equipment
  • Conduct experiments and properly document the procedures
