Today's Chemical Engineer applies principles of chemistry and physics to the design and production of materials that undergo chemical changes during manufacturing. Chemical Engineers also play a vital role in efforts to maintain a clean environment and to create substitutes for or find ways to preserve our natural resources.



MECOP currently accepts Chemical Engineering students from the following universities:

Skills & Disciplines

A Chemical Engineer's tool bag of skills includes a solid understanding of methods of designing and modeling processes with many interactions. MECOP interns focusing on Chemical Engineering can develop skills from real-world experience in mass transfer, heat transfer, chemical reaction engineering, fluid dynamics, and thermal dynamics as well as other projects. Emerging areas of interest in this dynamic field include biochemical engineering, high-temperature ceramic materials, thin film processing, environmental control, waste minimization, polymer processing and rheology, as well as computerized process control.
