As a fellow Chemical Engineer (at least a paper one) I feel your pain. But no MatLab? ChemCAD at least? Labview? I was required to take C++ and a few other ‘programmingish’ courses and took Prob/Stats lab which had a programming element to it. Most majors have slight deficiencies, so I can’t see why recruiters needed to be so closed minded. At my school, EE’s didn’t even have to take Differential Equations which I thought was especially bizarre since 95% of the math they do involves DiffEqs.
