The placement rate for our chemical engineers is among the nation's highest. In fact, U.S. News & World Report includes Clarkson in its 2014 "Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs" at schools whose highest degree is a Ph.D in the 2014 issue of "America’s Best Graduate Schools."

Our graduates are sought both for their strong technical skills as well as their versatility. Graduates work in sectors that include production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, plastics and other synthetics; petroleum refining and many more. Our dedicated faculty has expertise and research in these fields as well providing no shortage of advising options and research.
