Chemical engineers try to get in on waste water... but I was warned when I considered the sector I'd probably end up doing more Civil stuff. It wasn't that which put me off, it was the fact that (in the treatment plants I've seen) the process stinks. Literally.
yep... first 7 year of my life 1 1/2 mile down the road from main sewerage works for Cambridge. If it was a hot day or the wind blowed in the wrong direction we knew about it.
As I said in my previous post mainly civil with a bit of chemical thrown in for the processes.
Chemical... now what you want is brewing! The industry that is shrinking is sugar extraction from Beet.
Depends whether you like aerobic or anaerobic processes Tamsin, and what sort of hours you want. Forget Christmas with the Sugar campaign ( yet another relative!)

So that's Waste and Effluent management, systems and disposal then. Civil with a bit of chemical thrown in when you look at sludge digesters and aerobic/anaerobic processes.
The whole lot really. Treatment works design and sewerage (the pipes feeding the works, pump stations, overflows, etc.). Eventually I got into computer modelling of sewerage networks and then out of civil engineering altogether.
Why does it all end up with mathematical modelling? No don't answer that... I actually know the answer... it is what my mum did with traffic...
