Presentation on theme: "Ben Minnick HMDV-151-R903 April 12 th, 2012. DSM works on various engineering projects, such as wind powered shipping, biofuels, fuel efficient planes,"— Presentation transcript:
DSM works on various engineering projects, such as wind powered shipping, biofuels, fuel efficient planes, and much more. Locally, DSM chemical engineers work on nutritional products such as vitamins, carotenoids, and UV filters. Majority of these products are nature-identical. In other words, natural chemicals are manufactured.
To intern at DSM, extensive college lab experience is required. Instead of a direct internship, I was given a tour of the lab and lunch with other chemical engineers. During the tour of the lab, they explained the process DSM chemical engineers follow to manufacture chemicals. During lunch, I was able to ask questions about chemical engineering.
I am still interested in the research side of chemical engineering. This experience made me realize that I’m interested in inorganic chemistry more than organic chemistry. Overall, the educational requirements, typical day, and earnings for a chemical engineer are what I expected.
