They have to understand how outside strains and forces influence material behavior. › Chemical Engineers need to have a strong mathematical comprehension and the ability to trouble shoot problems. They have to understand how different chemicals react with one another, how heat and pressure affects the different chemicals, and how mixed compound reacts to the steels and textiles that make up a tire. › Beyond a college degree and the above skills, the real requirement is the interest and willingness to learn more and work hard to advance. › Using STEM to spark students’ interest in hands on, lucrative careers How education shapes career paths… 7 May Author, © Continental Tire the Americas, LLC
