Of all the engineering careers, chemical engineering and electronic engineering have enjoyed in the past higher stating salaries right out of the university due to the demand in the industries that need these engineering resources. If you are in your freshman year you are probably taking some of the basic courses that most engineering BS degrees require. Starting with your junior and senior years you will be taking the specialty and advance courses in order to get your degree in chemical engineering.

I recommend that you work closely with your assigned engineering studies advisor (or mentor) to plan the courses (minimum number of credits) that you must take to graduate and also the type of option and elective courses which are available for you to take and will permit you to develop a concentration or option in a more specialized technical area.

Examples of these topics include Biotechnology, Environmental Engineering, Polymer Engineering, Process Safety Engineering, Environmental Sustainability, Risk Analysis, Electronic Materials Processing, etc.

Once you become a chemical engineer and get employed in the field of your choice you will experience the rewards of self-achievement of obtaining your BS Degree but also you will be working in a new environment of continuous learning afforded by your project assignments.
