Graduates of Chemical Engineering are expected to be able to:

  • Solve complex engineering problems using the application of mathematics and science knowledge
  • Conduct engineering procedures professionally and ethically
  • Understand and explain the significance of engineering solutions globally, economically, and environmentally
  • Use up to date techniques, skills, and engineering tools for agricultural engineering procedure
  • Apply engineering and management principles both as a member and a leader in a team
  • Design, execute and enhance integrated systems including people, materials, information, equipment, and energy
  • Understand at least one specialized field of chemical engineering

On-The-Job Training/Internship

During the fourth year of the program, students are required to attend an On the Job Training (OJT) in a company, organization, or agency that specializes in chemical engineering practices and procedures. 

Students are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in an actual work setting.

J. R.
◈ Studied BS Chemical Engineering
◈ At University of the Philippines Los Banos
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose Chemical Engineering: Chemical Engineering is a profession like no other. I was totally impressed by my Uncle who was then a very successful Chemical Engineer and I really wanted to be just like him.

list bulletAbout my college education: Chemical Engineering is a five year course where in you will have a lot of subjects to study. During the first year, fundamentals such as chemistry, mathematics, physics and biology will be taken up. And then later on, different engineering sciences and other basic engineering courses will be taken up also. And of course the major Chemical Engineering subjects such as Chemical Thermodynamics, Chemical Kinetics, Biochemical Engineering, Transport Phenomena, Chemical process control, Equipment design, plant design and so much more.

It was very tedious, very challenging, time consuming, and stressful. There were a lot of difficult exams and subjects where in it will be "normal" to fail. If you do not have a support group to help you study as well as help you cope with different failures, you'll go crazy. Of course, you also need to have passion. The love for learning and the determination to succeed is very vital.

list bulletMy current job: I am a cadet engineer working in a petrochemical company.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Some of it, yes. Some, I have already forgotten. But the most important things that I am able to apply in my job is the sense of responsibility and accountability as well as professionalism. UP has trained me, not only to be a knowledgeable man, but also to be a well rounded individual.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I had to prepare and pass my board exam first. It took me almost a year before I got the job.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Chemical Engineering: I recommend Chemical Engineering. Chemical Engineers are very versatile, so there are a lot of career opportunities to choose from. And if you have a change of hearts, chemical engineering is also a good pre-med and pre-law course. Chemical Engineers have very broad academic background, one can also be an entrepreneur since we also had several economics subjects.

As a chemical engineer, the pay is good. And you have a promising career growth once you enter the industry. A very fulfilling career indeed.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: The Chemical Engineering course is like a battle field. You should be able to determine where your strengths and weaknesses are. It won't be easy. But in the end, it will be all worth it.
