Chemical Engineering Curriculum

The program provides a curriculum that begins with strong emphasis on fundamental science, mathematics and engineering sciences. The upper level curriculum builds on this foundation by imparting basic knowledge and applications of transport processes, thermodynamics and kinetic processes, process control and computer aided design. In addition, emphasis is placed on the economic and societal implications of chemical engineering to increase awareness and social responsibility.

We have been making significant changes and modifications to our curriculum to reflect the needs of our students to be competitive and valuable in this changing market place.  We have introduced several options to the general chemical engineering curriculum.

Environmental Option
The program offers an option in environmental engineering.  The curriculum for this option includes courses in environmental engineering and sciences

Biochemical Engineering Option
Chemical Engineering students who are interested in working in the biochemical engineering industry (such as pharmaceutical) can select the biochemical engineering option. The curriculum for this option includes courses in biology, biochemistry, biochemical engineering and microbiology to prepare students for careers in this industry.

Pre-med Option
Chemical Engineering students, who are interested in attending medical school, can select pre-med option. Curriculum for this option includes courses in biology and second part of organic chemistry to prepare students for medical school.
