Chemical Engineering

If you like critical thinking, love chemistry, and want to use your creativity to improve the products we all use every day, you should explore chemical engineering. It’s a broad field that combines chemistry with engineering principles. Chemical engineers design industrial machines and plants that perform chemical reactions (kaboom!), develop new materials for all kinds of products from cosmetics to foods, and work at the forefront of developing fields such as nanotechnology (tiny stuff) and biotechnology (living stuff).
