About Our Department

A School of Engineering student works in a lab. Clarkson is a great school for chemical engineering and chemical engineers.

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.  




Department Spotlight

After finishing in first place in the northeast regional Chem-E-Car competition this spring, Clarkson's Chem-E-Car team heads to Pittsburgh in October for the 2018 AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers) National Chem-E-Car Competition. They'll be battling it out with winners from the Western, Mid-America and Pacific Northwest regions. The northeast regional top prize is Clarkson’s best finish in this event in the team’s history. The Chem-E-Car group is one of Clarkson's SPEED (Student Projects for Engineering Experience & Design) teams. Find out more about SPEED -- the program that lets students design, build, and compete, all while making lifelong friendships.
