Program Description

Overview

The mission of the Benedictine College Engineering Department is to provide a multidisciplinary engineering undergraduate education built on an authentically Catholic liberal arts foundation. Graduates of the program will be professionals who are excellent problem solvers, committed to the highest ethical standards and proficient communicators. They will understand the role of engineering as a profession and their duty, as engineers, to promote the common good of society.

The Engineering Department offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering. As they continue to develop the engineering program, a fee of $150 per semester is charged to each student to help support the continued improvement of the engineering program.

Career Opportunities

  • Employment of chemical engineers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Demand for chemical engineers’ services depends largely on demand for the products of various manufacturing industries.
  • The median annual wage for chemical engineers was $98,340 in May 2016
