Chemical engineers have been improving people's lives for more than a century. From innovations in medical diagnostic tool development, recycling, disease treatment, biofuel production, and the development of smaller, faster computer chips, the processes and products chemical engineers have helped create touch every aspect of our lives. Chemical engineering uniquely intertwines the creation, design, operation, and optimization of processes that derive practical benefits from chemical or physical changes. In short, chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry and engineering to solve practical problems.
