School of Engineering

The study of Chemical Engineering begins with experimentation in the laboratory and is followed by implementation of technology in full-scale production.

What You'll Study

The study of Chemical Engineering begins with experimentation in the laboratory and is followed by implementation of technology in full-scale production. The mission of the undergraduate program in CHEME is to develop students' understanding of the core scientific, mathematical, and engineering principles that serve as the foundation underlying these technological processes. The program's core mission is reflected in its curriculum which is built on a foundation in the sciences of chemistry, physics, and biology. Course work includes the study of applied mathematics, material and energy balances, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, energy and mass transfer, separations technologies, chemical reaction kinetics and reactor design, and process design.
