    1. There are two ways to look at this: engineering roles and non-engineering roles. Engineering roles will most likely include process engineering at an oil and gas company, pharmaceuticals company, etc.. You design the processes of how things flow in and out (could be oil, chemicals etc) of various pipes.. Chemical Engineering may be more broad, you might work in plastics, water, renewables etc where you're more designing products and the process of manufacturing for those products.

    Non-engineering roles run the whole gamut. If you want to stick with a numerical theme, you could do trading, accounting, actuarial stuff, risk management etc.. Tangentially, marketing, PR, journalism, law (you don't need a law degree to do law), patent law (slightly different to standard law and heavily favours stem grads), consulting (IT or management) etc.. Pretty much most jobs available to grads (80%+) don't require specific degrees.

    2. Lol, why would you think that? No course is mainly for any gender, you can do whatever you want regardless of what gender you have
