Chemical Engineering LabChemical engineering touches virtually every facet of our lives. Chemical engineers combine a wide range of disciplines to turn raw materials into life-saving medicines, innovative renewable energy sources, unique polymers and more.

Our program places an emphasis on hands-on learning and offers undergraduate students a chance to conduct sophisticated research with real world impacts. To build a specialty, students participate in one of three tracks: general, biology or pharmaceutical.

Graduates receive some of the highest salaries of those holding undergraduate degrees and are actively sought after by some of the most esteemed global companies and research institutions.
