What are the main branches to ChemE

<p>I'm applying to engineering departments in my senior year next year as I want to get my undergrad in chemical engineering. What are the main branches of chemical engineering?</p>

<p>an undergraduate education will be fairly general, so you should be able to enter all different fields of chem e after a B.S., but as far as different concentrations go here some are (but not limited to) polymer processing (materials sciences and engineering), petroleum engineering, pharmaceuticals. Generally after a B.S. in industry tho most ChE's just have the title Process, Design, or Quality Engineer.</p>

<p>Yeah, it will depend on the industry you go into. Any industry that manufacturers or processes something will need an engineer, and you will get niche quite quickly. You can switch between industries, but those will probably have something in common; if not so much the material being processed but the equipment that is doing the processing.</p>

<p>^Is there any way I can download that video?</p>

<p>the two main branches of chemcial engineering are: unemployment and underemployment. frustration and low pay are close at third and fourth respectively.</p>

<p>Oh? Chemical engineers have the #2 highest starting salary of any undergraduate major, behind petroleum engineering.</p>
