Chemical engineers can find new ways to be eco-friendly or how to convert raw materials into other useful forms. In college, they study mathematics, physics, biology, and of course, chemistry. These scientists can work for a variety of companies such as an engineering firm or chemical, pharmaceutical, and food manufacturing companies. A bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering prepares you for this highly versatile career.
