The classes are interesting and I’m excited about what I will be able to do with my degree. Chemical engineers can do so many things - from working with environmental engineers and cleaning up the planet, to working at a chocolate factory and participating in research that furthers our understanding of the world we live in. I'm interested in so many things, so having the ability to be part of a wide variety of projects during my career will be very exciting.

Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is the study and application of chemical principles to industrial processes. Chemical engineering students build a strong foundation in mathematics, chemistry and the fundamentals of engineering. When you choose Florida Tech for a chemical engineering degree, you're choosing a university that is listed among the Fiske Guide's "Engineering/Top Technical Institutes" and Parade Magazine's College A-List in Engineering.

Whether you want to discover alternative sources of energy, develop new methods of food production, or engineer the next medical breakthrough, a chemical engineering degree from Florida Tech develops a strong background in modern chemical dynamics.

Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, new technical electives allow you to specialize in unique career-track subfields such as biochemical engineering, systems engineering, nuclear technology and energy engineering, making you a hot prospect in the eyes of future employers.

Gain Professional Experience

Our chemical engineering degree program is dynamic and focused. Classes are small, allowing students an opportunity to work on research projects with faculty in the areas of chemical engineering, chemistry and biological sciences. The program's reputation and proximity to a variety of high-tech companies means you can also expect to find a great internship and build valuable on-the-job experience.

Seniors also complete a design project in collaboration with a team of their peers to design, develop, prototype and present a complex chemical plant.

These learning opportunities provide practical experience, an expanded professional network and perhaps even a pre-graduation job offer.

Build Professional Relationships

Beyond the classroom, chemical engineering majors build leadership and professional experience through exciting internships and participation in academic organizations like the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the American Chemical Society Student Affiliates, student government and over 100 other campus-wide student organizations.

Get Recruited Upon Graduation

Employers that seek out graduates with a chemical engineering degree from Florida Tech for internships and careers include GE, Duracell, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals and Northrop Grumman.

Earn an Advanced Degree

After receiving their chemical engineering degree, many of our students go on to graduate school at Florida Tech or other universities such as Stanford, MIT, Johns Hopkins, Virginia Tech and Yale.
