As a chemical engineer, you can choose your own adventure. An incredibly versatile discipline that combines engineering principles and the sciences of chemistry, biology and physics, chemical engineers create everything from cleaner water and better-tasting food, to more powerful silicon microchips, beauty products, and medicines. The career possibilities are truly endless, with many chemical engineers also going on to leadership roles in business and education, or to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams and goals for environmental sustainability.
In the Department of Chemical Engineering, our students receive training from renowned, award-winning professors. Our undergraduates have the opportunity to join teams taking prizes at water treatment and chemical plant design competitions, and gain invaluable work experience through our mandatory co-operative internship program. Our graduate students work on innovative research that accelerates their careers and changes lives—from engineering cartilage tissue to designing cancer-fighting polymers.
