The world we live in would look very different if it were not for the many problems solved by chemical engineers. Without regulations on food, products, and drugs, our safety would be in jeopardy. The advancements and contributions of chemical engineers are crucial to everyday life- making chemical engineering a great field of work.
The CEAS chemical engineering program fuels this progress in the city of Cincinnati. UC’s chemical engineering program, within a nationally ranked college, contributes daily to the public. Each year students graduate and enter the workforce with sound knowledge, years of experience in co-op assignments, and confidence in their abilities. This year, UC welcomes the incoming class of engineers who can’t wait to get started.
Seven of the 26 National Merit Scholars are entering the chemical engineering program bringing energy, talent, and great potential.
