Clemson alumni and Chemical Engineering graduate Suzanne Roat

ChBE Alumnus Suzanne Roat Spreads Clemson University’s Impact across the Globe
Clemson alumni and Chemical Engineering graduate Suzanne Roat has made arrangements to create an endowed scholarship for engineering students in the Calhoun Honors College. Roat is now based in Houston as a crude and refining strategy analyst for Chevron Downstream and Chemicals. She attributes her success to Clemson University and wants to make sure other people are successful as well. Roat learned a special lesson in Unit Operations Lab-- nobody works alone. In the lab, the students had to work as a team in order to accomplish their tasks. “Having those experiences is vital,” she said. “Nothing happens in a large company like Chevron by one person. It’s always teams of people working on things together, bringing together their individual expertise to the project and making the project go forward. Being able to work in a team environment successfully is imperative.”
