Sr. Project Engineer
I am responsible for design and construction of
new or expanded chemical manufacturing facilities.
I enjoyed math and chemistry in high school.
I wanted to work with applied science so that I
could see definite results in a relatively short
period of time. My high school chemistry teacher
recommended Chemical Engineering to me.
If you like to solve puzzles or challenges,
engineering is a good career choice. It provides
a lot of interesting options for the types of work
you can do. It allows you to get a very good, high
paying job after jsut a 4-year college degree.
Take as much math and science as possible even if
you aren't sure what you want to do after high school.
That is the best way to keep all of your options
open while you explore various career options.
