The Hibbs Institute for Business and Economic Research at the University of Texas at Tyler was contracted by the University’s College of Engineering to conduct an Occupational Profile of the Chemical Engineer Occupation in the East Texas region. The College of Engineering intends to develop a Chemical Engineer Program at the University of Texas at Tyler. With this purpose in mind, the College is interested in understanding the labor market conditions in the region for chemical engineers, so they can decide whether opening this new program would result in a mutual benefit between future graduates and the companies or organizations that require such expertise. This study details regional labor market conditions in order to enable decision-makers to better understand the past and current East Texas profile of chemical engineers, as well as the expected conditions for future graduates from such a program. The occupational profile provided in this report includes sections for employment, wages, education, and job posts.
