Chemistry is the basis of engineering specialties

Over the past decades, chemistry has changed our world beyond recognition. Think about it: everywhere we are surrounded by artificially created materials. They make clothes, shoes, furniture, dishes, detergents and explosives, paints, building materials, cosmetics, electrical equipment, all types of transport, and many other useful and necessary things. «Chemistry stretches out its hands widely in human Affairs.» These words of M.V. Lomonosov perfectly reflect the significance of chemistry for our entire civilization. The chemist changes the face of the world. It creates composites from ordinary mineral raw materials, turns natural materials into hundreds and thousands of products necessary for man. It is not surprising that the labor market for graduates of chemical schools is very extensive. If you are thinking of making chemistry your profession, this article will be useful for you.
Will there be of you a chemist?
Perhaps you are now deciding whether to link your fate with chemistry and whether you have the skills that would allow you to make a brilliant career in this field. Academician D. A. Epstein argued that the main thing for a chemist is the head and hands, that is, intelligence combined with developed motor skills. And, of course, no less important is the desire-a keen interest in substances and a desire to work with them. Studying the biographies of recognized luminaries of chemistry, you can see that they were interested in the processes of converting substances from an early age. For example, D.I. Mendeleyev spent his childhood at a glass factory, Yu. Liebig enthusiastically watched the preparation of medicines in the pharmacy of his father, V. Ostwald was engaged in photography, and he was especially interested in solutions of developers, fixers, as well as the processes by which the image appears on paper. If you are sincerely interested in the science of substances, but still not sure that you want to make it your profession, we recommend reading the book by G.V. Lisichkin and L.A. Korobeynikova «Are you Fit to be a chemist?». It may help you make the right choice.
The specialty «technologist» is suitable for those who want to work in chemical enterprises – in factory workshops and production laboratories. Kazakhstan’s chemical industry has come to life and is in urgent need of young specialists. In addition, today many chemical enterprises in Kazakhstan have begun to offer employees decent salaries. Chemical technologists are in high demand in enterprises that produce and process plastics, paint materials, fertilizers, as well as in the oil industry.
Tasks of the technologist: development of new compositions with specified properties; selection of raw materials; development of technologies for the production of new products; study of the properties of new substances and adjustment of recipes to improve quality. Today, not just chemical technologists are particularly in demand, but good specialists who are able to work with suppliers of raw materials, are well-versed in the chemical market, and can develop and lead projects for the introduction of a new type of product. This means that you will not be hindered by initiative, the ability to work with people, additional knowledge of Economics and management. Then you will be able to apply not only for an interesting job in your specialty, but also for a very decent income. Specialists in chemical technologies are trained at the Caspian University of Technologies and Engineering named after Sh.Yessenov.
