Process engineering is a complex and continuously changing field. It is an industry that deals in processes that turn raw materials into an end product or commodity. These are generally continuous processes that are crucial to a wide range of sectors, including the pharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical, food and beverage industries. Process engineers are tasked with the design, implementation, control and optimisation of a wide range of industrial processes. Like most of Industry, the process industry has a number of challenges to navigate, including a skilled labour shortage, technological advances in the Industry 4.0 era, cybersecurity, changing B2B marketing practices, and ongoing regulatory changes.
