In addition to the basic physical sciences underlying all engineering, the chemical engineering curriculum focuses on practical approaches to problem-solving, which will prepare you for a wide choice of careers in pharmaceutical, chemical, food, biochemical, and polymer industries, as well as government agencies.
Your coursework will begin with an emphasis on chemistry and mathematics. You'll began taking specific courses in engineering at the start of your sophomore year. During senior year, you'll take a two-semester process design course in which you will design a chemical engineering process to produce specified products and then analyze it for safety, operational stability, environmental impacts and economic benefits.
You'll also participate in a year-long project that simulates both the technical and business aspects of a professional engineering project, ranging from research to creative conception and design, to construction and evaluation.
