Top Skills for success as a Process Engineer:
Number one on my list would be to constantly keep learning! In a career spanning 42 years I've done research, designed three greenfield plants, led three different projects, optimized plant operations, been the "tool leader" for Six Sigma, Simulation, Automation and Optimization, and been a department manager. Keep up with your fundamental chemical engineering knowledge and look for ways to help your colleagues. You just never know what you'll need to do. But learning will always play a key role.
