Chemical engineers use chemical processes to find innovative and creative ways of producing goods that improve and protect human health, the environment, energy, materials and more. Our students acquire a breadth of knowledge, allowing them to become employed across a spectrum of industries, from traditional chemicals and petroleum­-based processes to medical fields, including pharmaceuticals, tissue engineering, quantum dots for imaging and therapeutics, vaccines, genome engineering, and labs-on-a-chip diagnostics, as well as specialty industries like food and beverage processing, textiles, microelectronics, and alternative energy.
