Curriculum | Tracks | Professional Electives |Objectives & Outcomes

With an emphasis on hands-on experience, our students combine learning in chemistry, physics and biology to prepare for careers in chemical production, pharmaceuticals, polymers, new materials, renewable energy, environmental sustainability and more. Our students pursue a general, biology or pharmaceutical track.

Accelerated 5-Year B.S./M.S. Program


This program allows students to complete both the B.S. and M.S. degrees within five years. Students use two summer sessions, one straight after completing their undergraduate degree and the summer following the next academic year to enable them to complete their M.S. degree.

For admission into the program students must apply during the fall semester of their senior year. A minimum overall GPA of 3.0 is required. Student applicants will be notified of their admission during the second semester of their senior year. To apply, follow the Graduate School application procedure.

International Engineering Program

The International Engineering Program combines a B.S. degree in any of the college’s engineering disciplines with a B.A. degree in a foreign language (German, Spanish, French, Italian or Chinese). The five-year program includes a year studying abroad. The first semester abroad is spent at the IEP’s partner university taking engineering, language, and culture courses in the host language. This is followed by a six-month paid internship with an international engineering firm in the same country.


The Chemical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org
