Chemical Engineers take chemistry out of the laboratory and into the world around us. They are problem solvers who apply scientific knowledge, technical expertise, and creativity to make useful materials, efficiently and safely.
  • Chemical Engineers are involved in creating new wonder drugs and materials that improve life on Earth and make space exploration a reality. The Chemical Engineer is versatile. They may develop better soles for your sport shoes, or create the materials needed for the next generation of solar cells, or perfect the chocolate coating on your favorite candy bar.
  • Chemical Engineers work in research, design, development, production, technical sales, and management. Some are consultants, computer system designers, lawyers focusing on patent or environmental law, or brewers of specialty beers.
  • Chemical engineers are responsible for many the technological breakthroughs that have literally changed the course of human history. Each of the following accomplishments are just a few example of what chemical engineers have made possible.
