Modern industry is becoming more and more science-intensive, new synthetic materials are constantly being improved and created for various spheres of human life, technological processes are changing. In the 21st century, chemical engineering has reached a new level with the help of nanotechnology.

Chemical engineering specialists are in demand in various fields:

  • Food production, processing
  • Household and industrial chemicals
  • Processing of minerals and other resources
  • Manufacturing of medicines
  • Manufacture of cosmetics and perfumery
  • Manufacturing of industrial equipment
  • Environmental protection
  • Recycling
  • Protection of public health and much more.

Chemical engineers are needed both in production for testing new processes, production products, and in science (development of new technologies, materials).

Studying chemical engineering at a US university gives you access to the most advanced knowledge in the field. American universities have their own research centers, equipped with modern equipment, in which famous scientists work together with students.

In addition to close ties with science, US universities maintain constant relationships with industry leaders so that students undergo internships at enterprises with a high technological level.

The optimal combination of theory, research and practice gives excellent results in the formation of specialists in this field. To broaden the horizons of students, US universities actively participate in international exchange programs, giving the opportunity to see other technology schools and a different approach.

A diploma from an American university in chemical engineering, materials technology makes it possible to find an application for their forces in any country in the world.
