THE BIG PICTURE

Chemistry permeates every aspect of modern life, and chemists are being called on more and more to be problem solvers. For example, in pharmaceutical and medicine manufacturing, professional chemists are called on to develop new materials and nanotechnologies for medical use. In chemical manufacturing, chemists are being asked to use knowledge of “green chemistry” to improve environmental safety while maintaining process efficiency. There are a wide range of jobs chemistry graduates can find including working as an analytical chemist, a chemical engineer, a lab technician and more.
