Course Requirements

Specific requirements for the standard option in chemical engineering are as follows:

Any of the following will satisfy the advanced science requirement:

Any of the following will satisfy the engineering elective requirement:

The following alternative courses may satisfy course requirements as specified:

In the case of the Bisc 160-163 series, the student must take all 8 credits to fulfill the requirement for one 3-credit technical elective. A maximum of 3 credits of Ch E 330 may be used to satisfy one of the technical elective requirements.

Emphases in Chemical Engineering

As alternative to the standard or pre-med options in chemical engineering, a student may choose to obtain a B.S. in Chemical Engineering with one or more of the following four emphases: biotechnology, environmental, manufacturing (in collaboration with the Center for Manufacturing Excellence), and materials. The same general education and course requirements (defined above) apply to all emphases in chemical engineering. Taking specific advanced chemistry and elective courses satisfy specific emphasis requirements.
