Find 2019 Chemical Engineering Internships

The Industry

Are you looking for chemical engineering internships or entry-level chemical engineering jobs? Chemical engineers design and oversee large-scale chemical manufacturing processes. They do that so chemical materials are available in useful forms and products for general consumption. Biotech and pharmaceutical companies, federal agencies, private corporations, testing labs, medical device companies, and research and development companies all employ chemical engineers.

The Internship

Employers in this field often seek out grads who have had a chemical engineering internship before. A summer chemical engineering internship will give you practical experience assisting senior engineers on real projects in offices, factory settings, and/or the field.

To land a chemical engineering internship, you’ll need strong academic performance and professor recommendations. Some employers prefer interns with an Engineer in Training (EIT) designation, which can be accomplished by completing 3 years of an ABET-accredited engineering program and passing the FE exam. Experience with Microsoft Excel will also help you with projections and analysis of data in a business setting.

As an intern, you’ll likely be placed on a team with engineers and help lab professionals with tasks such as preparing prototypes, setting up equipment, performing calculations, and creating lab reports. You’ll get invaluable feedback and coaching on your performance.

The Career Options

Chemical engineers specialize in fields such as nano-materials, biological engineering, catalysis, control science, energy, or materials. Some narrow their specialization even further to specific processes such as polymerization or oxidation, or they focus on developing particular products. Once you have significant experience as a chemical engineer, you can advance to become an engineering, manufacturing, operations, or production manager.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of chemical engineering jobs is expected to grow about 2% over the next decade, which is slower than average.
