3 College Sophomore

Academics: There are many internships available, and almost everyone that applies gets one. The workload can be a lot at times, but the schedule is flexible, so you can mix it up if you need to

4 College Freshman

Academics: The only problem I have is that it is difficult to acquire work from within the department because the low supply.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Great selection of classes, most are high quality. The professors are all great. Can't complain.

4 College Senior

Academics: The work load is intense. If your not up to sleepless nights and long weekends don't even dream of being a Chemical Engineer. However it is also rewarding when you finally understand a concept that your going over in class you feel you understand the world a bit better and it feels amazing. And a job is almost guaranteed once you graduate.
