    I’ve always been drawn to chemistry, mostly because of the really interesting experiments I did in chemistry class. I remember my first chemistry teacher in 9th grade, Mr. Prince. It was his course in particular that ignited a passion within me for science. Combining chemistry with math led me to pursue chemical engineering.

    Chemical engineering is just one of the many engineering disciplines. What types of engineering fascinate you the most, and why?
