Alternative to the Individualized Emphasis in Chemical Engineering (defined below), a student may choose to obtain a B.S. in Chemical Engineering with one or more of the following four emphases: Biotechnology, Environmental, Materials, and Manufacturing (in collaboration with the Center for Manufacturing Excellence). The same General Education and Course Requires (defined above) apply to all emphases in Chemical Engineering. The taking of specific Advanced Chemistry and elective courses satisfy an Emphasis requirement as defined below.
The following are common statements for all of the Ch E emphases:
|Any Approved Advanced Chemistry||3 credits|
|Technical Electives and/or ChE R&D Experience (ChE 330)||9 credits|
Note: Students in the B.S.Ch.E. BME emphasis must choose to take CSCI 251.
The following Advanced Chemistry and technical electives are required for a Biomedical Engineering emphasis: CHEM 334, Biophysical Chemistry; EL E 313 - Biomedical Physiology; EL E 413 - Biomedical Signal Processing; and 3-credits of Technical Elective. The technology elective may be fulfilled using ChE 330, ChE R&D Experience.
The following Advanced Chemistry and technical electives are required for a Biotechnology Emphasis: Chem 334, Biophysical Chemistry; Phar 331, Basic Pharmaceutics, ChE 520, Biochemical Engineering and 3-credits of Technical Elective. The technical elective may be fulfilled using ChE 330, ChE R&D Experience.
The following courses are required for an Environmental Emphasis:
Note: Students in Materials Must Choose to take ENGR 309.
The following courses are required for a Materials Emphasis:
The following Advanced Chemistry and Technical Electives are required for a Manufacturing Emphasis: Manf 150, 251, 252, 253, 254, 350, ChE 460, 461, and Bus 250. Manf 250 recommended but not required.
The following recommended pathway allows a student to meet the entrance requirements of Medical Schools while pursuing a B.S. in Chemical Engineering:
We also recommend that students applying to Med Schools take Chem 226, Organic Chem. Lab II, which is not required in Chemical Engineering, may be required for Med. School entrance.
