Apply scientific knowledge, math and creativity to your career as a technical professional.
Want to play a critical role in a company’s environmental, health and safety (EHS) activities and lead its sustainability efforts? Working behind the scenes at some of the nation’s largest corporations, EHS technicians ensure companies comply with regulations, advocate for environmental policies, and protect workers’ health and safety. While each company is different, EHS technicians are often called upon to collect and analyze data, conduct research and coordinate programs that reduce company loss and liability.
Want to oversee an organization’s environmental program? Environmental engineers develop techniques to recover usable materials and reduce waste in the manufacturing of a product. From designing air pollution control mechanisms for refiners to ensuring a petrochemical facility complies with environmental regulations, environmental engineers play an important role in the energy industry. They research regulations and make recommendations, design and develop environmentally-friendly systems, and provide technical support for environmental remediation and litigation projects.
Want a career that allows you to answer the question – is something even feasible? Chemical engineers convert raw materials into something valuable, such as gas for our cars. Through collaboration with research and development teams, Chemical engineers design, troubleshoot and optimize new technologies. Chemical engineering is unique because it combines life sciences, physics and chemistry with mathematics and economics to transform how we use chemicals, materials and energy.
Are you tech-savvy and good with electronics? Electrical engineers specialize in technology related to electricity generation, delivery and use. They are not only a valuable asset to fuel and petrochemical manufacturers, but they are also important for utility and power providers all over the world. Similar to other forms of engineering, electrical engineers perform maintenance however electrical engineering is unique because it focuses on electronics, circuits, and appliances that deliver electricity.
Want to turn your ideas into reality? Mechanical engineers are creative thinkers who work behind the scenes to build things that improve people's lives. In fuel and petrochemical manufacturing, mechanical engineers improve systems and create efficient ways to safely operate facilities. They are involved in all aspects of production from performing calculations to diagnosing repairs. Mechanical engineers specialize in physics, material science, design, manufacturing and maintenance.
