Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Curriculum


Undergraduate chemical engineering courses cover thermodynamics; mass and energy balances; energy, mass, and momentum transfer; unit operations; process dynamics and control; process design; plant and product design; professional practice; and chemical reaction engineering.  A cumulative QPA of 2.0 must be achieved in all CHE courses for the student to earn a degree in Chemical Engineering and a minimum grade of C- in CHE 0100 , CHE 0200 , CHE 0300  and CHE 0400 .

In addition, the curriculum provides a sequence of technical electives that makes possible specialization in some of the most important areas in today’s society. Among these are the biochemical, petroleum, and polymers areas of concentration. Students may select any combination of technical electives. The appropriate selection of electives, however, can lead to a minor or area of concentration. (See Minors in Engineering .)
