In the Chemical Engineering curriculum, students learn to apply chemistry, physics, and mathematics to the industrial-scale production of chemicals, including petroleum products, polymers, pharmaceuticals,electronic devices, and foods. This program also explores chemical engineering applications in environmental protection,waste treatment, the creation of alternative energy sources, and other frontiers, such as microelectronic materials and nanotechnology.
The BS in Chemical Engineering program offers expertise in a wide variety of areas, including thermodynamics, separation processes, transport phenomena, reactor design, combustion, and process control. Students may use elective courses to specialize in these and other areas. The program’s goal is to prepare students for careers in industry or government, and for further study at the graduate level. As the only chemical engineering department at a public university in the Chicago metropolitan area, this program provides unique opportunities for students to interact with world-class industries through research projects and internship programs.
All College of Engineering undergraduate students are required to be advised before they are able to register for classes each semester. Advising hold will not be removed until you are advised. Advising for Chemical Engineering Students is during the 10th week of Spring and Fall semesters. Advising Sign-up is taking place during the 9th week. For the Fall semester 2012: Advising Sign-Up will be held on the 8th week, October 15 - 19, 2012 and Advising appointments will take place on the 9th week, October 22 - October 26, 2012. For the Spring semester 2013 Advising Sign-up will be during the 9th week, March 11-15, 2013 and Advising appointments will take place on the 10th week March 18-22, 2013. Please check this list and schedule an appointment with your adviser by filling-in the Sign-Up sheet on their office door.
