Early in your school selection process, you must choose what type of engineering degree you want to earn. An Associate's degree is designed to prepare you for Bachelor's-level coursework. A Bachelor's degree, which takes four years, is often required for entry-level jobs in this field. A two-year Master's degree or seven-year PhD can get you into the research field.

Throughout the duration of your program, you will likely be required to take a variety of theory courses that develop your understanding of how engineering works. At the Bachelor's degree level, you may take courses like Material & Energy Balance, Chemical Reaction Engineering, and Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics. At the Master's degree level, required courses include Polymer Rheology & Processing, Viscous Flow, and Chemical Engineering Kinetics.

The vast majority of your engineering courses will require some sort of lab work. Your school's engineering lab can give you the chance to work with chemicals.

There are many different tuition rates in Pennsylvania, so it's up to you to choose a school that fits into your budget. One of the less-expensive schools in the state is Pennsylvania State University, where tuition is $8,045 per semester for residents and $14,332 per semester for non-residents. Geneva College is known for its fairly high tuition rates; tuition for all students is $12,610 per semester.

Scholarships and grants are great ways to pay for your education and save money. At the University of Pittsburgh, you can apply for many different scholarships, including the Frank J. Reed Scholarship, the New Economy Technology Scholarship, and the Ashrae J. Richard Mehalick Scholarship.

You may want to become a Professional Engineer to enjoy a wide range of job opportunities in Pennsylvania. All PE licensing goes through the State Registration Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and Geologists. As a PE, you can also take part in networking events held by the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers.

Chemical engineers tend to earn fairly high salaries. O*Net reports that the average salary for a chemical engineer is $93,100 per year.
