Chemical and biomolecular engineering principles are taught as the foundation of the BS degree; however, students are also expected to solve all kinds of problems, to view systems in their entirety, and to formulate and test solutions irrespective of the framework of the problem. Completion of the BS degree prepares students for entry into the workforce or advanced study in a variety of graduate programs.

Degrees Offered

  • BS in ChBE—Standard Option: provides the basics of biomolecular engineering but allows much more flexibility for students to pursue other areas of chemical engineering, such as microelectronics, materials, and the environment. Special opportunities exist for students wishing to pursue minors or certificates in fields of particular interest, and students are encouraged to participate in faculty-directed research.
  • BS in ChBE—Biotechnology Option: allows students to focus their education on the biomolecular aspects of chemical and biomolecular engineering. This option includes the core chemical engineering courses, specialized biomolecular engineering courses, biochemistry, and technical electives focused in the biotechnology area.
  • Five-year BS/MS in ChBE: seeks to engage undergraduate students who indicate an interest in, and ability for, additional education beyond the BS degree. Students with significant AP credit will be especially well positioned to take advantage of this opportunity.
