The Chemical & Materials Engineering Department prepares engineers for a career in the development and application of processes that involve chemical and physical materials transformations. The program offers a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering (BSChE), which includes work related to the design, construction and operation of plants for fuels, plastics, fibers, foods and pharmaceuticals. Because of their strong background in chemistry and materials processing, many chemical engineers also work for industry as environmental engineers. A Materials Engineering minor emphasizes ceramics, polymers, metals and alloys.
