Chemical Engineering, Bachelor of Science Degree

What will I learn in a chemical engineering degree program?

The bachelor's degree program prepares students to enter chemical engineering positions in industry, government or academia and to excel in those positions. We aim to develop not just technical expertise but also a commitment to professional enrichment through life-long learning and critical thinking.

Our degree program has three detailed objectives:

  1. Prepare students for professional success by teaching them to solve problems in both chemical engineering and areas outside the discipline
  2. Make students aware of the larger context of engineering applications, including global, ethical, environmental, societal and legal concerns
  3. Teach the communication and problem-solving skills necessary to succeed individually, in a group and in leadership positions

The bachelor's degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. ABET is the recognized as the worldwide leader in assuring quality and stimulating innovation in applied science, computing, engineering and engineering technology education.
