Chemical engineering is the profession which applies mathematics, chemistry and physics to develop economic ways of using raw materials and energy for the benefit of humankind. Chemical engineers develop processes and products that are energy efficient, environmentally-sustainable and profitable. Chemical engineers make products such as petrochemicals, polymers, drugs, therapeutics, paper, dyes, fertilizers, foods and beverages. Practically every product that we use and enjoy has involved chemical engineering.

Of the many Chemical Engineering programs I researched in high school, the one at Manhattan had everything I wanted: an excellent reputation, a challenging curriculum, and classes small enough for the professors to know who I am.
