A fellow chemical engineer told me that there are only two things about electricity that a chemical engineer needs to know:
- You can't see it.
- It can kill you.
Anything else is a problem for an electrical engineer.
While I do enjoy learning about other disciplines, I generally agree with this one. Let them worry about how things get powered.
Instrumentation, how you measure things, is a different matter. I think chemical engineers should take time to understand how different instruments work and importantly, how they fail. After all, control systems can lie to you.Go Top
