BSChE: Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering

Click on the link below to see the required courses for completing the curriculum for the B.S. in Chemical Engineering, a program accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org.)

The first two years emphasize coursework in the basic sciences (math, physics, chemistry, and biology). Introductory Chemical and Biological Engineering courses (ChBE10 and 11) are also included to introduce the student to general underlying concepts in the discipline. The junior and senior years then provide more advanced and specific core coursework that places chemical and biological examples and applications in an engineering context.

Of the 120 semester-hour units (SHUs) or more required for the professional degrees accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, a minimum of 30 SHUs must be completed in college level math and basic science subjects appropriate to the discipline and a minimum of 45 SHUs must be completed in engineering topics, consistent with ABET general and program criteria.
