list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: In the design industry, yes, I am very much using my college subjects in here. I am very grateful that we have plant design subjects and process control and all that, all of which very much applicable in my current position. Even the technical drawing part, that I thought I won't use, I am using it here as well.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: 7 months

list bulletDo I recommend studying Chemical Engineering: Honestly, I think Chemical Engineering is the best undergraduate program ever existed. Chemical Engineers are very versatile! They are knowledgeable in so many different subject areas. You can be a big time chemical engineer, or if it doesn't work out, chemical engineering can be your pre-law or pre-med course because of the fundamental subjects that you take during the program. Chemical engineers can be entrepreneurs too... It is really a very ideal undergraduate degree!

There are a lot of different industries that can use a chemical engineering graduate. The options are almost limitless. You just have to choose wisely to land to a position that you'll love and at the same time, pay you really good as well.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: This is a very challenging course, this is not for those who buckle under pressure and give up when there is too much stress. Chemical Engineering is for smart and strong people.
