Chemists and engineers design processing equipment and manufacturing facilities or specialize in a particular field such as pollution control, food-process engineering, or pharmaceutical engineering. They help produce specific products that make our world a better place in which to live. Food processors, for example, work closely with product managers to develop specialties like fat-free foods, seedless fruit, and the perfect French fry!

Good to Know: All of Vincennes University’s pre-engineering programs are designed to transfer to a four-year school. The focus in all engineering tracts is developing sound problem-solving techniques. The laboratory is your practice ground as you learn the nature of chemical reactions and translates that to mass transport – reactions occurring on a much larger scale, as in chemical plants.
Who is this degree for: Students who are interested in designing solutions for food creation and manufacturing.
