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.

Pre-Med 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

Mission Statement

The School of Engineering at the University of Mississippi strives to continuously improve the quality of teaching, research and service. In so doing, the School

The School capitalizes on its engineering science tradition, its low student to faculty ratio, and the liberal arts environment of the University of Mississippi to give our graduates the abilities to adapt to the rapid changes in engineering and to give our graduates the interdisciplinary background and capacity for innovation that sets them apart from the graduates of larger engineering schools.

Statement of Goals

Course Requirements

Specific requirements for the individualized emphasis in chemical engineering are as follows: Math 261-264, Math 353, Writ 100, Writ 101, Writ 102, or Liba 102; Chem 105, 106, 115, 116, and Phys 211, 212, 221, 222; Chem 221, 222, 225, advanced chemistry (defined below); Csci 251 or Engr 309, 310, 313, 321, 322, 360; Ch E 103, 104, 307, 308, 317, 345, 411, 417, 421, 423, 445, 446, 451, 452, 412 or 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, Chem 472, Ch E 543, Ch E 545, G E 503, and Engr 540. The following alternative courses may satisfy course requirements as specified:

Emphases in Chemical Engineering: As alternative to the standard or PreMed options in chemical engineering, 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, 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.

Other Academic Requirements

Students in the Department of Chemical Engineering are encouraged to take the Fundamentals of Engineering examination prior to awarding of the baccalaureate degree.
