1 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y Welcome to Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Contact: Dr. Charlie Gooding,

2 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y Combines chemistry, biology, physics, & mathematics Focuses on the engineering & processing of materials, from synthesis through purification to end use Earning a BS degree in Chemical Engineering will prepare you for a wide variety of career options. Contact: Dr. Charlie Gooding, What is Chemical Engineering? “One thing that makes chemical engineering great is that there are so many things you can do with this degree. The options are almost limitless.” — Stephen Finley, ’07

3 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y Careers in Chemical Engineering Pharmaceuticals Environmental Sustainability Electronic & Advanced Materials Energy Contact: Dr. Charlie Gooding,

4 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y Careers in Chemical Engineering Commodity and Specialty Chemicals FoodBiotechnology Contact: Dr. Charlie Gooding,

5 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y Careers in Chemical Engineering MedicineLaw Business Contact: Dr. Charlie Gooding,

6 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y 80% entered full time employment average starting salary: $65,000 (range $50,000-$90,000) 20% continued academic preparation with graduate work in engineering, medicine, or law Contact: Dr. Charlie Gooding, Recent Job Stats for Clemson BSChEs

7 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y ChEs are expected to see significant employment growth for the foreseeable future (US Dept. of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics) Large growth opportunities are expected in research and development, particularly in energy, biotechnology, and nanotechnology (Sloan Career Cornerstone Center) Pharmaceuticals, specialty chemicals, and energy are likely offer the best manufacturing opportunities for ChEs (Sloan Career Cornerstone Center) Contact: Dr. Charlie Gooding, Career Path Forecast

8 CLEMSON U N I V E R S I T Y PhD: Usually required or research/development or university teaching. Recent Clemson grads have chosen to continue their studies at MIT, UCBerkeley, UTexas, GaTech,, UVa, UFla, NCState, Iowa, Clemson, and several other universities. MS: Can be used as a first step toward a PhD or to bolster your resume, but don’t expect a quick payout. Professional Degrees: Medical/dental, veterinary, law. (Columbia U, USC, MUSC, UGa, UNC-Chapel Hill) Master’s in Business Administration (MBA): usually of more value if you get a few years’ of industry experience first. Professional Engineer (PE) – certification based on 5 years’ experience and a professional exam. Contact: Dr. Charlie Gooding, Advanced Career Opportunities
