    Hello, I have recently completed my B. Sc. in Chemical Engineering and got an admission decision from a university in USA for PhD. The university is a research-based excellent university. But I am worried because I don't have any idea about the job field for Chemical Engineers in USA. Does the university from where someone completes his graduation influence the acceptance rate in job field? If you could, please give me some idea of job requirements for Chemical Engineers in USA. Thank you.

    Hello Tiffany, My name is Michelle and I am currently attending a community college. It is my third year there and I have recently changed my major to chemical engineering because I fell in love with chemistry and physics. I'd like to focus, like you, in environmental issues because it is something I am very passionate about. I am very excited to what is to come now that I decided on this major. However, there is still a doubt in the back of my mind because I know engineering has a lot of math. ...

    Hi Michelle,
    
    I actually did struggle with math quite a bit in college. I failed calculus 1 the first time I took it, but earned a B on my second attempt! The most important thing is to keep trying, and working hard to overcome the weaknesses we have. ...

    Hello, I am interested in pursuit a career in biomedical engineering, but I am not sure if I should pursue a more general engineering approach such as chemical engineering to acquire the skills employers look for (I heard that most employers prefer candidates with either a mechanical, electronic, or chemical engineering degree as opposed to a biomedical engineering degree). I am considering getting a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and then, pursuing a M.S. or Ph. D. in biomedical engineering. I ...

    Hi Maria,
    
    I would say that the industry employeers preference in undergrad engineering declines is not directly related to the career path you're considering. Chemical Engineers are often preferable to employeers because they have a broad curriculum ...

    Hi. I live in Georgia, and I want to major in chemical engineering. I was wondering if they travel a lot, because I feel like I would get home sick. And do you have time for yourself like a social life? My teacher told me i should wait 15 years to settle down to do anything and that is a long time. lol.

    I want to become a chemical engineer, and am applying to universities for it. But people mostly around me are discouraging me to pursue chemical engineering. They say its a job sector that's not designed for girls & it doesn't give much opportunity to girls. Plus I have also been told that the sector doesn't pay that well either. What can I do?

    I agree there are plenty of great oppertunities! I graduated in 2006 and of my fellow chemical engineering graduates about 60% of them were female. Actually, ChemE have the highest amount of female students. While some of the traditional chemical ...
