Chemical Engineering is unique in the engineering profession in that it requires a strong foundation in chemical principles, as well as in the physical and engineering sciences common to all branches of engineering. An education in Chemical Engineering is one of the broadest—the chemical engineer may find employment in all phases of technical operations. Chemical process industries supply society with a vast array of products, including chemicals, fuels, plastics, metals, foods, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and cryogenic materials. In recent years, Chemical Engineers have found employment in the microelectronics industry and in the advanced materials, biochemical and biomedical engineering fields. Chemical Engineers also serve society by reducing and eliminating pollution.
The Chemical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
