Careers in Chemical Engineering
Chemical engineering is a broad-based discipline, with roots in chemistry, math, physics, and biology. While about 80 percent of potential jobs are found in the chemical industry, chemical engineering’s interdisciplinary nature means potential careers run the gamut. Indeed, chemical engineering has been called the liberal arts of engineering.
