In this article chemical engineering education in Iran is reviewed. Some suggestions and modification are presented improving education in this field. It is believed that removing the titles of subspecialty from general title of chemical engineering would be beneficials to graduated, because they can find jobs in other area too. In entrance exam the weight of chemistry course should be reduced from a factor of 4 to 2, so the students with stronger math and physics can enter this field. A course of introduction to chemical engineering must be presented to freshmn student. Also it is suggested to pit more emphasis on math oriented software in chemical engineering. An introduction to chemical engineering literature and library search of freshmn students would be very helpful.
