the number of chemical engineering departments are only a quarter of that of the chemistry departments.
However, the number of chemical engineering (bachelor) graduates is almost 50% of that of the chemistry graduates. ie. there are half as many chemical engineering students graduate each year.
the same holds true for PhD too. Wow..
Twice as many chemists graduate each year, but it also suggest that each chemical engineering department takes in more student than a chemistry department. It makes me wonder if chemical engineering departments are increasingly less selective over the years.
