    I got accepted in a chemical engineering undergraduate program over here. I am not sure if I made the right decision or no, since I like working more with the chemicals and biology but not with construction machines. Which I've lately figured out that this is the whole point if chemical engineering. So I wanted to know more about Chemical engineering. Is it only about constructing machinery or will I be actually able to perform chemical reaction and separations. Another thing, what are the ...

    Hi, I want to do medical research in the lab. I'm also interested in product design but at a research level, not large scale. My major is molecular biology but I was thinking of changing it to chemical engineering. Are there opportunities in what I'm interested in with just a bachelors degree in chemical engineering (if I don't want to join grad school just after)? I am an international student

    Hi Engineers! I'm a junior in High School, and I've been thinking about applying to colleges lately. I've been thinking about couple of options I'd like to major in. I'm mostly interested in chemistry. I'd like to become a cosmetic chemist one day. I'm more interested in the actual product development in the cosmetic industry. I was thinking about applying as a chemical engineering major, but my friends and teachers have been telling me that I could possibly apply as a biochemistry or pharmacy ...
