Careers:Chemical Engineers


Chemical engineers combine their knowledge of chemistry, biology, math, and physics with engineering disciplines to solve practical problems and create new products and processes. Chemical engineering is central to addressing the key issues our society is facing: sustainability, health, and stewardship of the environment.

Your program will teach you to design, build, evaluate and improve products, systems, and processes. Innovative courses and laboratories that simulate industrial processes will enable you to put theory into practice. You’ll learn in a teaching facility called the Unit Operations Lab, which is filled with large-scale industrial equipment, including a two-storey distillation column and batch reactors that students operate. In Year Four, you’ll be part of a student team that will design an industrial processing plant from concept to implementation in just 10 weeks.
