Process Engineer in Philadelphia:
"Chemical Engineering is not what it's cracked up to be."
I wish that I would have been told before I started college that people who are smart and good at math can go to college for something other than engineering. Chemical plant engineering is done in China and India primarily now, so the dreams of designing a chemical plant are few and far between. If you are good at math and technology go to school for finance or computer science/engineering. These fields seem to have a lot more to offer. As far as being a process engineer goes it's typically a 50+ hour work week, off hour phone calls and some occasional weekends. The job itself is mostly paperwork. Writing procedures, writing quality statements and writing up statements to confirm certain types of equipment can be used in manufacturing.
