Applying knowledge of chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics, chemical engineers
create new products and processes in fields ranging from manufacturing and healthcare
to food processing and environmental health and safety. The Department of Chemical
Engineering offers B.S.E., M.E., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering. The
department is also part of the interdisciplinary program in Biomedical Engineering, offering both undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Chemical engineers lead new developments in medicine, advanced materials, energy,
consumer products, manufacturing and environmental solutions.
Our 131 semester-hour undergraduate explores wide-ranging topics including mathematics,
chemistry, biology and physics. Our B.S.E. program prepares you for a career in chemical
process industries or advanced degrees in chemical engineering, medicine, law or business.
Undergraduate students also can choose to follow concentrations in biomolecular engineering,
interdisciplinary engineering, materials or energy.
New graduates may work in: manufacturing, healthcare, food processing, and environmental
health and safety.
