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.
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 .)
