Curriculum Information

Our curriculum provides two areas of concentration: chemical engineering and biomolecular engineering. Each area is based on a strong fundamental understanding of chemical engineering; the biomolecular concentration’s technical electives focus more on bio-applied processing and technology.

  • Chemical Engineering: This concentration is designed to prepare students for careers in the energy, chemical, food, pharmaceutical, semiconductor processing, personal care, fiber, and materials industries.
  • Biomolecular Engineering: This concentration builds upon the traditional principles of chemical engineering, but specializes in biological and biotechnological systems in order to better prepare students who are interested in or seek employment in the food, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries.
