Making the World a Better Place

Nuclear energy. Energy development. Environmental research. Nearly every company in the chemical process industry, materials science, food production and medical fields employ chemical engineers. The Chemical Engineering program at Kettering is one of only six accredited programs in the state of Michigan.

Chemical Engineering students put their creativity to work to synthesize new materials, transform combinations of elements of matter and develop the processes to do it all safely. For example, students work on ways to better use limited petroleum resources, or design new processes to produce life-saving antibiotics and vaccines.

Playing a Central Role

The field of Chemical Engineering will play a central role in solving the major problems confronting the U.S. economy. Energy, chemical manufacturing processes, the state of the environment and the emergence of nanotechnology are all heavily influenced by chemical engineering. Almost every company in the chemical process industry, nuclear energy, materials science, food production, energy development and medical fields employ chemical engineers.

Our Accreditation

The Chemical Engineering program was accredited in 2013 by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (EAC/ABET). Kettering University has been accredited since 1962 by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
