Chemical Engineering explores the processing of materials and the production or utilization of energy through chemical reactions.

Materials Science and Engineering studies material properties and applies knowledge to developing new materals.

Chemical engineering explores the processing of materials and the production or utilization of energy through chemical and biochemical reactions. Many products that we use every single day are made by chemical engineers who use raw materials and turn them into something useful. Chemical engineers play a key role in producing antibiotics, soft drinks, and even make-up. There are also many chemical engineers who work with petroleum and plastics. Chemical engineers work at finding solutions to environmental hazards, such as pollution and harmful chemicals. Graduates typically work in the chemical processing industry, biotechnology, environmental remediation, food processing, pharmaceuticals, and plastics.
