Chemical engineers have a broad enough background to do almost anything they choose. All branches of engineering emphasize the application of the principles of mathematics and physics to solve problems and create products for the community at large. Chemical engineers, however, are unique in emphasizing applications that are also founded in chemistry and biology. 

Chemical engineers are primarily concerned with processes and equipment in which material undergoes a change in composition or state. Chemical engineers often become employed by a company which manufactures a variety of chemical products, including plastics, forest products, gasoline, food, textile fibers, and pharmaceuticals. 

Chemical engineers also find career opportunities in the fabrication of microelectronic devices, the control of industrial and municipal wastes, and the application of science to produce chemicals from biological materials.

As graduates, they are in high demand for companies that manufacture plastics, forest products, gasoline, food, textile fibers, pharmaceuticals, microelectronic devices and more.


A career in Chemical Engineering program from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University is often a route to top management. In view of the many options open to its graduates, Chemical Engineering can be a particularly good choice for students who have broad interests, but have not yet defined their career objectives.
