Hey guys, I'm looking for good online courses that I can take to benefit my resume as an entery-level chemical engineer. Any recommendation? Not AICHE ones.

Thanks

Hi all,

I am a recent graduate from a good US school and I have been applying nonstop for months while I wait for my OPT card. I understand that the job market for entry level positions in the US is hard, even for domestic applicants. However, I am hopeful that there are some positions that might consider me. Ones which US candidates shy away from for whatever reason. I am thinking that my OPT work authorization, which requires no work on my employer part for 3 years will serve as an "extended interview" where they can decide if I am worth going through the hassle of sponsorship or not.

I graduated with dual degrees in chemical engineering and chemistry, my GPA is 3.7 for both, I have an internship and two years of theoretical research. I have won multiple awards and I have some programming/data science background. I hope that this may set me apart for a company to feel like I am worth the investment/gamble.

I understand that I won't be picked up by Exxon, nor will I be able to find a job in Houston or any other vibrant location. That is all fine by me. I am willing to work in rural areas, less than ideal/hazardous work environments, tough work cultures, odd hours, rotating shifts, weekends/holidays, you name it. I just need a shot to prove myself.

Anyone have any recommendations, tips or ideas about how to search for companies that are willing to try out foreigners? Again, I will take anything, literally zero expectations from my side except that the position is an engineering position, and that I won't be underpaid.

I am a chemical engineering student currently interning with a top company in the energy industry. I will be graduating next May and so it’s possible that if they like me they could be extending a full time offer sometime at the start of the semester. I have been working towards this for a while, and in any other circumstance I would accept. However, due to circumstances i won’t go into online i am also looking into employment in Georgia, at a company where I could still develop applicable skills that could be used in the energy industry about 5 years from now. I have every intention of getting back into the energy industry, unless somehow that changes later on down the line.

I would like to work for the company I’m currently interning with in the future full time but I don’t want to turn them down if they extend me an offer without a plan in Georgia. I also think it would be a bad idea to accept the offer and then renege later on down the line. Im also afraid due to the popularity of my current company that i will never be able to find my way back in, especially since they prefer hiring people straight out of school as opposed to experienced hires. I know there are some decent companies in and around Atlanta but my commute to those places would be 45 minutes (without traffic). Outside of that I’m struggling to find somewhere I would be interested in working. Can anybody offer any advice? It appears to me there aren’t a whole lot of opportunities compared to other states.

It's been over 20 years since I graduated with my undergrad in ChE so please bear with me (I also shifted industries so never in practice). Is there a preferred sampling method to detect process shifts in, well my case, process temperature? I'm looking for something that cannot be consistently detected via SPC.

Chemical Engineering - Reddit by /u/mabpurification - 18h ago

Hi all. I’ve recently entered the biotech industry and work with developing chromatography and filtration steps. I purchased a book on ultrafiltration in bio processing and it was fantastic I learned a ton about the underlying principles and theories. I am now beginning to focus more on the chromatography side of things and am wondering if anyone has recommendations for a great book. Thanks.

Do you know of any hydrophobic materials or coatings that could be used to manufacture a pipe so a slurry of water and dirt would not become attached to a pipe?

Hey,

As I'm finishing with my thesis which will conclude my years as a ChemE student,I'm considering of taking some of the classes of these sites,before I search for a Master's Degree (or even better ,a job!).So I would love to hear your recommendations!

Things to know: Right now there is only industry in my mind,not research(Mainly because the universities in my country are...not in the best state).I did my internship in a pharmaceutical plant and I really liked courses like process control,project management.Also, I currently work on nanomaterials and semi-conductors ,trying to deal with water pollution(One of the applications),so anything close to that would be a great recommendation!

I really hope that you can enlighten me guys!Thank you!

P.S. I don't expect you to do all the search for me of course,I've looked into some programs,I just want a second opinion :)
