The accredited College of Engineering is a pillar of The University of Toledo. Bright, motivated students are attracted by UToledo’s engineering co-op program. We are one of only eight colleges in the U.S. that requires this practical work experience.
Chemical engineers are regarded as the most versatile of all engineers. They work in a broad range of industries from medicine to microelectronics. They combine math, chemistry, physics and biology with engineering to:
Chemical engineering majors in the Department of Chemical Engineering are challenged to think creatively. They learn strong technical, entrepreneurial and leadership skills.
Co-op jobs are available in Toledo, all over the U.S. and in 34 countries. Students are prepared for co-ops with a required professional development course. Many of UToledo’s engineering students receive job offers from their co-op placements.
UToledo graduates with a chemical engineering degree have a greater than 85% job placement rate.
A chemical engineer usually works with processes and physical aspects of materials rather than with the chemistry of materials (that’s a chemist’s job). Chemical engineers are involved in:
UToledo’s chemical engineering curriculum emphasizes theoretical classroom work and experiential learning.
All UToledo chemical engineering majors complete at least three semesters of co-op experiences. You will be assisted in finding co-op placements by the College of Engineering’s Career Development Center.
Four students from UToledo’s College of Engineering traveled with Professor Glenn Lipscomb to El Salvador in May of 2016 to install a water treatment unit they built earlier in the year. Learn more from the UT News article.
