Undergraduate students in the School of Engineering follow a common first year curriculum. Students declare a specific engineering major during the second semester of the first-year studies. Undergraduates studying in the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering have the opportunity to pursue co-op educational programs, faculty-led research projects, and gain real world experience with internships and involvement in student chapters of professional organizations.

Note regarding Microbiology:Pre-req override for General Microbiology (01:447:390 & 11:680:390)The biology requirement for General Microbiology is waived for chemical engineering students who have completed Organic Chemistry I & II, and Biological Foundations (155:210). Deans and advisors at SoE Office of Academic Services grant pre-req override to CBE students taking General Microbiology. Please contact B-100 for pre-req override.For Biochem Option students: 11:680:390 (SAS) is equivalent to 01:447:390 (SEBS), so either course counts toward the Biochem Option requirement.
