CHEMICAL, BIOMOLECULAR, AND CORROSION ENGINEERING
Chemical and biomolecular engineers apply the principles of chemistry, biology, physics and math to solve problems in the following sectors: gas and oil extraction, nuclear and alternative energy, mining and minerals, food and drink, consumer goods, environmental, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals.
The University of Akron's CBE engineering programs prepare students for careers in industry by providing a rich, interactive education of the chemical and corrosion engineering professions.
I had no idea what career to pursue in college. I had a strong background in chemistry and calculus, so chemical engineering seemed like a great fit. After a semester in the program, I never looked back.”
