Can someone please explain in detail what the difference is between a chemist and a chemical engineer? I have no idea what I want to do with my future so I am considering all options. I was thinking about applying to grad schools for Chem E, just to see what kind of offers I might get. I was reading a lot of schools' websites and most of them said that a Chem E undergraduate degree was not required to apply for the grad program in Chem E. My background is BS- Chemsitry BS- Mathematics Minor- Economics Would this be an adequate preparation for a grad program in Chem E? I know I would have to probably take an extra semester or so in grad school to get caught up on undergraduate Chem E concepts, but this does not bother me at all. I did very well in courses like Physical chemistry I and II which is more like engineering I am assuming. Please tell me if I have a shot at all at getting into any grad schools for Chem E. Thanks.
