Chemical engineering and chemistry are really two different disciplines.  Chemical engineering is the general knowledge of chemistry but with a focus on mathmatics, fluid dynamics, and thermodynamics.  Chemistry is a fundamental knowledge in the chemical properties, reactions, and their principles and theories.  Chemical engineers work in processing plants, while chemists work in labs analzing materials and their processes.

Science Branches

Applied Science
Chemical Engineering
  • Genetic
  • Materials Science
  • Metallurgical
  • Molecular
  • Nanoengineering
  • Petrochemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Paper Science
  • Plastics
  • Textile

Chemical engineers work in a variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, energy, and materials processing. They may work in research and development, process design and optimization, production, or process control, depending on their area of specialization.

You probably think that chemistry is part of physics, but it is not.  Both are part of physical science, but different branches, and both study the structure and properties of matter.  Physics deals with understand the universe in a fundamental way.  Chemistry is how substances interact with each other.
