The roles of a chemical engineering technician can be broad and complex. However their primary responsibility is to assist the chemical engineers with whom they work. Chemical engineering technicians usually work in a laboratory along with other members of a team conducting chemical experiments completing research studies or developing new experimental processes.

Some of the other responsibilities of a chemical engineering technician are observing chemical processes analyzing the results and making recommendations on how to improve the results. Additionally technicians keep meticulous notes on their findings so that results can be compiled and written into scientific documents that can be submitted to academic journals.
