What is Chemical Engineering?
Using the principles of mathematics, chemistry, physics and engineering sciences, Villanova chemical engineering students learn to transform and properly use chemicals and energy to produce almost anything. You will be taught to creatively solve technical, commercial and social problems arising in industries which manufacture bulk chemicals, fuels, pharmaceuticals, cell therapies, plastics, cosmetics, foods and much more. These solutions must respond to economic constraints as well as social, ethical, environmental and safety implications.
A Chemical Engineering degree will prepare you for careers in:
- Environmental protection
- Pharmaceutical manufacturing
