The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering offers two undergraduate degree programs:
Bachelors of Science in Chemical Engineering
Bachelor of Science in Biological Engineering
Both of these degree programs integrate chemistry, biochemistry, physics, and mathematics along with oral and written communications courses, and CORE courses in the humanities and social sciences. The bioengineering program adds a significant exposure to biological science in addition to the chemistry core. The chemical engineering and bioengineering programs are fundamentally similar in that both are focused on the transformation of molecules, but the methods and equipment used for biotransformation and separation are quite different from those used for chemical transformations. The curricula accommodate the unique characteristics of each discipline. Each ChBE student participates in a capstone senior design team project that provides an opportunity to pull together the knowledge and skills learned in earlier courses to solve a real world problem.
