|Description:||Chemical Engineering is the understanding, designing, and analyzing of chemical, biochemical and electrochemical systems, environmental and waste issues, fluid flow and fluid properties, heat transfer, power and energy, process control, and separation and purification of materials. Chemical engineers design, implement and improve technology to make life more comfortable for mankind, while keeping public safety in mind. Chemical engineers manipulate chemicals on a large scale by designing and operating complex processes that convert raw materials into more useful products.
Also known as process engineers, chemical engineers are very versatile, performing many different functions in many different industries: manufacturing, petroleum, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, design and construction, pulp and paper, petrochemicals, food processing, fertilizer, specialty chemicals, microelectronics, electronic and advanced materials, polymers, business services, biotechnology, environmental health, breweries, energy and safety industries.
Students in the College of Engineering have an opportunity to obtain work experience for a period of 8, 12 or 16 months between their third and fourth years. Students are paid a salary comparable to that of a graduating engineer.
