Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry, biology, physics, and math to solve problems that involve the production or use of chemicals, fuel, drugs, food, and many other products. They design processes and equipment for large-scale safe and sustainable manufacturing, plan and test methods of manufacturing products and treating byproducts, and supervise production.* Some of the benefits of a career in chemical engineering are:

  • Career Diversity

  • Hands-on

  • Cutting Edge

  • Compensation
