Electrochemical Engineering is the branch of chemical engineering which deals with technological applications of electrochemical phenomena, like electrowinning and refining of metals, electrosynthesis of chemicals, electrochemical separations and corrosion, flow batteries and fuel cells and surface modification by electrodeposition. This training is covered between chemical engineering and electrochemistry.
As stated with IUPAC, the term electrochemical engineering is restrained for electricity intensive processes for energy storage or industrial applications and it should not be confused with applied electrochemistry, which includes amperometric sensors, microelectrodes, small batteries, solid-state devices, microfluidic devices and more.
- 10+2 with Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry securing at least 50% marks in aggregate.
- Some top institutions will conduct entrance examination or selection will be done through the ranking of JEE Main, COMEDK or UPESDAT.
- Counselling is an essential part of admission and it is based on the marks that are scored in the qualifying examination or entrance examinations. Even few colleges include interview round as screening process for the students who have cleared the entrance test.
- In the beginning, Chemical and Electrochemical engineers can work for different interdependent and dependent roles. If they become independent and responsible they will be promoted to higher designations.
- As they develop in their career they will gain valuable experience that will assist them in solving different problems. Senior level or architect level workers will be able in developing valuable designs of models which have great importance in the real world.
- In future they can move into supervisory position or even they can become technical specialists.
- Some engineers will start their own companies, while some move into sales, some other become managers and team leaders.
- Even one can also join firms like book reviews, publishing articles, and news items which are related to these fields.
