Graduates routinely score in the 90th percentile or above on national assessment exams and are routinely sought-after by graduate schools and employers. Geneseo students do well partly because of the interaction Geneseo students have with professors and with each other. Participants take many classes together and study together in the Biology and Chemistry buildings, so a great deal of camaraderie develops among the biochemistry majors. The atmosphere is very supportive as students will work with faculty on their own research projects. Students obtain hands-on experience with sophisticated equipment, much of which is usually found only in graduate school, and they are encouraged to present their work at local or national meetings/symposia.

BScs in Natural Sciences. Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering A chemical engineer makes use of his/her background in chemistry, physics, mathematics and biology together with the skills of engineering and computer sciences. A chemist, a related professional, is generally interested in the behavior and synthesis of chemicals and work in small quantities in the laboratory to economically produce products on a large scale. The responsibility of a chemical engineer typically consists of: Assessing the feasibility of a process in order to produce a chemical or a product Selecting and designing processing equipment Operating, monitoring and controlling production Preparing recipes, determining quantities to be mixed and compounded Quality control assuring a high quality product Monitoring the efficiency of the process; process development Managing chemical companies Marketing and sales of chemical products METU Northern Cyprus Chemical Engineering Program Chemical engineering requires a strong background in basic sciences, mathematics, engineering sciences and skills as well as environmental, social and ethical consciousness. Our curriculum is designed to educate the future generation of chemical engineers who are well equipped in all of these areas. The students develop a strong background in chemistry and engineering in courses such as organic and physical chemistry, thermodynamics, unit operations and reaction engineering. Using this basis, we educate engineers who are capable of designing, operating, monitoring and maintaining chemical process plants. In addition to a strong technical background, in many courses we greatly emphasize environmental consciousness, ethical responsibilities and occupational health and safety issues. The program allows for students to specialize in two concentration areas: Resources Engineering (Area A) and Chemical Product Engineering (Area B). Resources Engineering track is available all the time, whereas the Chemical Resources Engineering track is opened based on the number of students that demand it. Significant number of elective courses can be taken in each area providing program flexibility. Career Opportunities Chemical engineers who graduate from our program will be able to take responsibilities in the chemical and related industries. Chemical engineers usually work in the areas of petroleum refining, petrochemicals, rubber and plastics, pulp and paper, fiber and textiles, pharmaceuticals, dyes and paints, cosmetics, sugar and starch, fermentation, fine and specialty chemicals, soap and detergent, oil, glass, ceramic, cement, industrial gas, catalyst, semiconductor, food, fertilizer, and agricultural chemicals. It is expected that, many companies would highly demand our graduates due to their in depth knowledge in the Resources Engineering or Chemical Product Engineering areas. Resources engineering emphasizes sustainable raw material and energy use, whereas Chemical Product Engineering emphasizes development and production of products such as ceramics, composites, plastics, dyes, and paints.
