#337 - Chemical Engineering Education In North, Central, and South America: Latest Developments (TJ002)
This session will focus on the growth of chemical engineering training at universities and technical institutes in North, Central, and South American regions and the Caribbean. In recent times, the annual number of chemical engineering graduates has increased immensely. These young engineers are currently leading improvements in the chemical industry. Also, many graduates are developing careers in research in their own countries and abroad. The instruction of chemical engineers in Latin America is changing due to professors and societal demands. This dynamic area in chemical engineering has unusual expectations for the near future.
