Topics of Study
In this program, you will learn how to design and develop processes and products which are part of everyday life and systems and equipment in chemical plants. You will learn to analyze chemical problems such as corrosion, energy loss, pollution, and particle abrasion. You will learn about chemical reactors, kinetic systems, electrochemical systems, heat and mass transfer systems, and separation processes. You will study mathematics and natural sciences, especially chemistry, and thermodynamics and laws of conservation of energy and mass.
- A bachelor's degree is sufficient for entry-level chemical engineering jobs.
- Advanced degrees are required for most jobs such as those in research and development, and biochemistry.
- Other jobs might be working as ecologists, inventors, and petroleum and chemical engineers, and in energy conservation. An advanced degree is required to teach in higher education.
