Master of Engineering in Biological Chemical Engineering
Chemical Engineers play important roles in all activities bearing on the chemical process industry. These include the functions of research, development, design, plant construction, plant operation and management, corporate planning, technical sales, and market analysis. The industries that produce chemical and /or certain physical changes in fluids, including petroleum and petrochemicals, rubbers and polymers, metals, industrial and fine chemicals, and industrial gases, have found chemical engineers to be vital to their success.
Additionally chemical engineers are the driving force in many exciting areas of bioengineering and biotechnology, including pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical R&D, cellular bioengineering, diagnostics, drug delivery, and the large-scale processing of food and consumer products from perfume to crayons to toothpaste.
Chemical engineers are also important participants in pollution abatement, national defense and homeland security, and the manufacture of microelectronic devices and integrated circuits. Their skills are also uniquely attuned to the engineering of efficient energy resources, from nuclear plants to fuel cells. Chemical engineers are bringing new perspectives and approaches to meeting the world's energy needs.
