did Chemical Engineering
discipline of chemical engineering developed
over the last century to meet the needs to analyze and design
processes for the large-scale chemical and biochemical manufacturing.
Chemical engineering is a distinct discipline that involves
the integration of physical and chemical phenomena. Examples
of attributes associated with chemical engineers are:
ability to understand and describe molecular transformations;
ability to understand and describe integrated phenomena
that span a wide range of length scales from molecular to
the ability to quantitatively describe and predict complex
is Chemical Engineering going?
engineering is now utilized in a wide variety of industries
that extend well beyond its beginnings in the large-scale
chemical processing industries. These areas include: environmental
engineering, biotechnology & bioengineering, pharmaceutical
and food industries, electronic materials, and even consulting,
government and financial sectors.
Engineering – the option
chemical engineering option is designed to educate students who will attain professional practice in chemical engineering, or in related engineering or science fields, or attend graduate or professional school, and, ultimately, become leaders in engineering, science, academia, industry and public service.
