Chemical engineers develop and manufacture better plastics, paints, fuels, fibers, medicines, fertilizers, semiconductors, paper and other kinds of chemicals by carrying out chemical reactions and purifications.
Chemical engineers find careers in environmental (see environmental engineering), materials, petroleum and biomedical engineering. The Engineering Department works closely with the Chemistry Department in offering the chemical engineering concentration.
