Any commercial process or product that uses or contains molecules probably involved a chemical engineer at some stage of development. In terms of contemporary societal problems, chemical engineers are at the forefront of the effort to design new and more efficient fuels, and we are critical to efforts at environmental remediation, including waste recycling and remediation. Within the military, chemical engineers are uniquely qualified to address problems in fuel and water production and distribution, power generation, and detection, decontamination, and protection against chemical and biological agents. This major offers an honors track. The Chemical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Chemical Engineering majors have a lab requirement/component.
