UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES


The Schools of Nursing and Pharmacy operate on both the Oxford and Jackson campuses. The Schools of Dentistry, Health Related Professionals and Medicine, and the Health Sciences Graduate School, are based in Jackson only. (Additional healthcare programs are available through the School of Applied Sciences on the Oxford campus.) Other than these exceptions, the schools above are on the Oxford campus.

Emphasis - Environmental Option

B.S.Ch.E. in Chemical Engineering

Description

The B.S. in chemical engineering provides the student with a fundamental knowledge of chemical engineering science and prepares graduates for a variety of careers in industry and government, or for advanced study in engineering, business, or professional school. The Department's educational objectives are fully consistent with those of the School of Engineering, and in particular with the first two mission statements of the School.

Minimum Total Credit Hours: 128

Goals/Mission Statement

Graduates from the Department of Chemical Engineering of the University of Mississippi are:

  1. Globally competitive in the professional world
  2. Prepared for success in their chosen career or in continued education
  3. Equipped with flexible problem-solving skills to address complex issues in society.

As students progress through the B.S.Ch.E. program, they develop a set of abilities that comprise the program outcomes. These outcomes are consistent with and encompass those proscribed by our accrediting organization.

Program Outcomes - Our students will demonstrate an:

General Education Requirements

In addition to the courses specified by the School of Engineering general education requirements, the following are required: Math 263-264 and Math 353; laboratory science to be fulfilled by Chem 105, 106, 115, 116 and Phys 211, 212, 221, 222. Students must complete 18 "SHFA" credits defined as follows: 3 hours of fine arts (nonperforming), 12 credits of liberal arts course work, and 3 credits of "additional general education course work" as defined below. The liberal arts course work must include one sequential work in the humanities and one sequential work in the social/behavioral sciences. "Sequential work" is defined as two or more courses from the same department using the acceptable courses in the humanities and social/behavioral sciences as defined in the School of Engineering general education requirements. One sequential work (either humanities or social/behavioral science) must contain a 300 or higher course number. If the student meets the fine arts, humanities, and social/behavioral science work defined above in 15 credits, then the final 3 credits of "additional general education course work" could be from any humanities, social/behavioral science, or the list of nonliberal art courses found in the "3 credits of additional general education course work" located in the School of Engineering general education requirements with the exception that speech and math content courses may not be used to satisfy any of these required 18 "SHFA" credits.

Course Requirements

Specific requirements for the individualized emphasis in chemical engineering are as follows: Chem 221, 222, 225, advanced chemistry (defined below); Csci 251 or Engr 309, 310, 313, 321, 322, 360 or 362; Ch E 103, 104, 307, 308, 317, 345, 411, 417, 421, 423, 445, 446, 451, 452, 511; technical electives to include three 3-hour electives of 300 or higher course number from among engineering, science, or mathematics. Any of the following will satisfy the advanced chemistry requirement: Chem 334, Chem 471, Ch E 545, G E 503, Engr 540, and Manf 350. The following alternative courses may satisfy course requirements as specified:

Emphases in Chemical Engineering: Alternative to the individualized emphasis in chemical engineering (defined above), a student may choose to obtain a B.S. in Chemical Engineering with one or more of the following five emphases: biotechnology, biomedical engineering, environmental, materials, and manufacturing (in collaboration with the Center for Manufacturing Excellence). The same general education and course requirements (defined above) apply to all emphases in chemical engineering. The taking of specific advanced chemistry and elective courses satisfy an emphasis requirement as defined below.
