The process that transforms raw to useful.
On an average day in the U.S., we consume 9 million barrels of gasoline, 4 million barrels of diesel,
63,000 tons of fertilizer, 350,000 tons of paper and 74,000 tons of plastics. Chemical engineers play a
crucial role in the production of these high-demand products.
In this program, you will study and analyze the fundamentals of industrial chemical processes that
transform raw materials into useful products. You will learn how to apply this knowledge to create and
optimize chemical processes and products that are efficient, high-quality, environmentally safe, and
The program offers special opportunities to design and conduct experiments using modern lab
equipment for chemical spectroscopy and separations, surface science and analysis, advanced battery
fabrication and testing, nuclear fuel cycle studies. You will also apply your new skills to design and
build a small chemically powered car, compete in national competitions, and solve practical industry
