Chemical Engineering applications touch every aspect of everyday life — from the extraction of coffee beans to the combustion processes that allow transportation, from the production of paper products to the synthesis of new drugs, from the implementation of new chemical processes to the remediation of contaminated sites.
Chemical engineering is the most versatile of the engineering disciplines. The versatility of our curriculum, including a broad base of engineering and basic science courses in chemistry, physics, and mathematics, will prepare you to work in areas directly related with chemical engineering, as well as other careers including medicine, and pharmacy. You will be key in transforming new sources of petroleum and natural gas into fuels, chemicals, and new materials.
The new energy boom in the U.S. will require chemical engineers to transform new energy resources into fuels, chemicals, and new materials. Our graduates are finding competitive jobs in petroleum exploration and refining, along with specialty chemicals industries. Our graduates also contribute to the exploration and implementation of renewable and sustainable sources of energy.
The average starting salary for chemical engineering graduates is approximately $75,000, with opportunities around the world and here in Lafayette. Acadiana is filled with and surrounded by companies providing services to the petroleum and chemical production companies, and many of our graduates have found success working in the area.

Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.Schedule TOEFL®
You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3.5 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
