The program provides a curriculum that begins with strong emphasis on fundamental science, mathematics and engineering. 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 in order to increase awareness of social responsibility.
Students can select one of the following options:
The Curriculum link shows expected classes for each semester. The Provisional link shows list of courses by topic. The Provisional Sheet is also called the Curriculum Balance Sheet.
The curriculum for general chemical engineering includes twelve credits of technical electives. Students can select four courses from a list of electives.
The curriculum for this option includes courses in environmental engineering and sciences, such as environmental engineering fundamentals and industrial pollution and abatement processes.
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.
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.
