Best Colleges for Chemical Engineering

With the exception of Lafayette College, the schools on our list of best colleges chemical engineering are universities or institutes of technology with a heavy focus on STEM fields of study. Chemical engineering is a rigorous major that immediately immerses undergraduate students in high-level math and science classes, and typically on minimal exposure to outside disciplines. For example, a freshman Chemical Engineering major at Berkeley, which cracks our list of top schools, takes courses in Physics, Calculus, Computer Programming, and Chemistry right off the bat. All of the schools below churn out future employees of major corporations such as Dow Chemical, DuPont, ExxonMobil, and BASF.
