Chemical engineering majors learn to change raw materials into economically viable products. Chemical engineers "develop economic ways of using materials and energy". Chemical engineers use chemistry and engineering to turn raw materials into usable products, such as medicine, petrochemicals and plastics on a large-scale, industrial setting. They are also involved in waste management and research.

The main aim of Chemical Engineering Department in NTNU is to teach stochiometry, unit operations, engineering thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, design, organic and inorganic technology, fuels and combustion, economics, administration courses and raise engineers who, are capable of making the design and installation of a chemical plant; can commence the operations in this plant, has a knowledge about the quality control, marketing and economics, has been teached on theoretical and practical issues both.
