Chemical Engineering B.S.Ch.E.

Eight-Semester Degree Program

The following section contains the list of courses required for the Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering degree. Not all courses are offered every semester, so students who deviate from the suggested sequence must pay careful attention to course scheduling and course prerequisites. Students wishing to follow the eight-semester degree plan should see the Eight-Semester Degree Policy in the Academic Regulations chapter for university requirements of the program. Entering freshmen will be required to participate in selected Freshman Engineering Student Services.
