The undergraduate program of study is fairly standard, combining required and elective courses. In
the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Program, students are required to fulfill their general,
humanities/social science, and technical elective requirements.
General Electives: Any course except the ones on this list can be a general elective.
Humanities/Social Science Electives: A list of acceptable humanities/social science
Technical Electives: Math and science-related courses.
Undergraduate Research (155:291, 292, 391, 392, 491, 492): This course allows for individual work under the guidance of a CBE faculty adviser on special problems in a specific area of chemical or biochemical engineering.
Co-Op Program (155:496, 497): The Co-Op Program gives undergraduates the
opportunity to earn degree credits while working in industry. Up to six co-op credits are accepted
toward the graduation requirements. Co-op credits count as technical or general electives.
Industrial Internship: (155:495): Internship in Chemical and Biochemical engineering provides students with the opportunity to practice and/or apply knowledge and skills in various chemical or biochemical engineering professional environments.
The Major Average: Academic standing is often decided on the basis of your major average. The major average includes all grade-bearing Chemical & Biochemical Engineering (155:xxx) courses.
