Endless Career Opportunities
Chemical engineering deals with the physical, chemical and biological transformations of matter that are the basis for making useful products. With its emphasis on problem-solving skills, quantitative analysis and teamwork, a chemical engineering education provides an excellent foundation for future careers in medicine, law, business, consulting and management.
Our undergraduates benefit from the active research programs in the department. Ongoing cutting‑edge research ensures that the content of the undergraduate program is constantly renewed and maintained at a challenging technical level and that discovery learning is integrated into the program. In addition, our undergraduates can work with faculty and graduate students as research assistants, for pay or credit during the academic year or the summer months. More than 75% of our graduating seniors have participated in some type of research experience.
