Chemical Engineering (B.S.)
Chemical engineering is concerned with the design, development, and management of facilities that convert raw materials into useful products. The engineer must assume responsibility for the economical use of the raw materials, preservation of the environment, and profitability of the operation. The chemical engineering program has been designed to provide both the engineering competence and the professional skills necessary to succeed in this endeavor.
Gain a strong foundation in chemical and biological engineering fundamentals to prepare for a career in professional practice or to further advance your studies. Learn about equipment design, control-system design, fluid mechanics and heat-transfer operations, mass-transfer operations, and chemical reaction engineering.
Our accredited chemical engineering program will prepare you for such careers as:
- Chemical engineer
- Manufacturing engineer
- Design engineer
- Process engineer
Illinois Tech’s undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum emphasizes basic knowledge and applications of transport processes; thermodynamics and kinetics of processes; automatic control and design; as well as fundamental sciences, mathematics, and engineering sciences.
Students of this program must be admitted to Illinois Tech. If interested in transferring to this program, students should consult their academic adviser.
