Chemical engineering professors are really accessible, I always feel welcome talking to them about anything from the class homework to advice on internships. I know all of my professors really well.
Chemical engineering is such a fascinating subject for me because it explains many of the everyday interactions around us. How long does it take your pasta pot to heat up? Why is your bike rusting? These questions are part of a larger system of physical and chemical properties we can use to make all sorts of stuff.
