“After 5 years in college and a few years in the industry, I can now briefly define chemical engineering as the field of developing processes for mass production, incorporating the disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology, and economics. In the manufacturing of pharmaceutical products, chemical engineering has impacts on selection of raw materials, equipment and settings, processes, facilities and environment, and has direct effect on the properties (safety, purity and efficacy), yield and value of the final product, as well as to reduction of waste and increasing the overall production efficiency. Chemical engineering is there from start to finish, and will continue to be involved in continuous process improvement and endless product innovations.” - Von Verlyn Villanueva, Gamma Lambda Isotactic
What is ‘chemical engineering’?
“There is no such thing as an easy course. Chemical Engineering will be very challenging, although if you put in the effort, if you give it your all, if you truly love Chemical Engineering, you will pull through.” - Frances Elaisah de Salit, Gamma Lambda Isotactic
“Truth is, it will have its difficult moments, just like in every engineering course. But I hope it helps to know that our ChE graduates were once high school students, too.” - James Patrick Lopez, Gamma Omicron Phlyzein
