Course Information

The chemical engineering undergraduate curriculum provides a thorough grounding in chemistry and chemical processing while allowing students to specialize in the Nuclear Engineering Option.

The curriculum requires a series of courses in basic science and mathematics. These provide a firm understanding of fundamentals, help students develop analytical techniques, and serve as the basis for specialized engineering courses. The curriculum consists of courses that serve as an introduction to engineering, link the basic sciences and engineering, and introduce engineering analysis, synthesis and design. Woven throughout the curriculum are courses in the arts and humanities and the social sciences, which broaden perspectives, maintain and improve communication skills, and expose the engineering students to concepts of values and ethics.

Advanced problems and topics in engineering design are also emphasized in the curriculum. The purpose is to develop skills in the use of science, sensitivity in the application of ethical considerations, sensibility in economic matters, and creativity in solving engineering problems. Laboratory work and computer applications are extensive.

The chemical engineering curriculum and the chemical engineering with nuclear engineering option are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. All undergraduate students are assigned a faculty advisor and are required to meet with their advisor during the advising and registration period and whenever the need arises.

After graduation, students are well prepared for careers in either traditional or emerging fields or may pursue advanced study. The faculty highlights new applications as well as the fundamentals in the curriculum, and students are given the tools to play a role in commercializing new technologies.

Students follow a sequence of courses beginning with basic mathematics and science, followed by their application to courses in engineering science and engineering design. Relevant clusters of studies in the humanities and social sciences are included within the context of engineering education to create well-rounded graduates.

The department offers several tracks for students with different levels of preparation in mathematics and English. It may take some students five years to complete their degree.

  • Nuclear Engineering Option (ABET accredited) 
  • Biological Engineering Option
