Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is one of the most broadly based engineering disciplines, offering opportunities in advanced materials, bioengineering, energy, environmental engineering, microelectronics, modeling and simulation, polymers, process systems and engineering, separations and surface and interface science. In chemical engineering, students will combine areas of physics, chemistry and mathematics to study the technology of large-scale production and manufacturing of products through chemical processes.
