Researchers, chemical and materials process engineers, pharmaceutical engineers, failure analysis engineers, and polymer engineers are some of the jobs that graduates of the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering obtain in the Silicon Valley and beyond. Our graduates and alumni work in the traditional industries of petroleum processing and metallurgy, as well as in industrial sectors as diverse as semiconductors and microelectronics, additive manufacturing, nanotechnology and biotechnology, food engineering and cosmetics engineering, alternative energy and environmental remediation. In addition to bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemical engineering and materials engineering, we offer undergraduate minors in and materials science and engineering. A high percentage of our graduates pursue masters of science and doctorate degrees in graduate schools across the country. The BS Chemical Engineering, and BS Materials Engineering programs are all accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
