The accredited College of Engineering is a pillar of The University of Toledo. Bright, motivated students are attracted by UT’s engineering co-op program. We are one of only eight colleges in the U.S. that requires this practical work experience.

Chemical engineers are regarded as the most versatile of all engineers. They work in a broad range of industries from medicine to microelectronics. They combine math, chemistry, physics and biology with engineering to:

  • Solve environmental problems.
  • Create new sources of fuel.
  • Develop solutions to water and food challenges.
  • Advance health care initiatives.

Why choose this course?

  • Required co-op program. The University of Toledo is one of eight colleges in the country to require a co-op experience for all engineering students. UT chemical engineering undergrads alternate classwork with three semesters of paid employment.
  • UToledo graduates get jobs. Chemical engineering graduates have a greater than 85% job placement rate. Starting salaries can be more than $65,000 a year. All students get free assistance from the Career Development Center in the College of Engineering.

  • Freshman Interest Group. This program eases the transition from high school to college. You'll share the same schedule of classes with a small group of other engineering students. You’ll also get support from an upperclassman engineering mentor.
  • Award-winning faculty. UToledo chemical engineering professors have extensive expertise in everything from biomass processing and fuels to polymer science and membrane separations. They lead UT efforts in alternative energy and materials research. Faculty members have earned distinction as teachers, advisers and researchers.
  • Hands-on experience. As freshmen, chemical engineering students develop a product or process that addresses a need in society. They present ideas to potential investors. Senior engineering students work with clients to complete similar capstone design projects.
  • State-of-the-art facilities. The chemical engineering degree program is housed in the Nitschke Engineering Complex located on UT’s Main Campus. 

Career prospects

UToledo graduates with a chemical engineering degree have a greater than 85% job placement rate. A chemical engineer usually works with processes and physical aspects of materials rather than with the chemistry of materials (that’s a chemist’s job). Chemical engineers are involved in:

  • Production formation
  • Scale-up of laboratory processes tp industrial size
  • Economic analyses
  • Pollution prevention and control
  • Health and safety
