Design is essential to chemical and biomolecular engineering education and is incorporated into many courses. Generally, as you progress through the curriculum and learn more fundamental engineering science, your courses will involve more design components and more complex design problems.

Design elements are integral to many courses, which lead to the senior process-design courses. In these courses, you will design chemical and biomolecular processes that must include engineering, safety, and economic considerations. To see what your 4-year schedule of classes might look like if you pursued this degree, visit the Typical Course Schedule page.

Degree Requirements

In addition to the Institute requirement of a 2.0 GPA or better for graduation, you also must meet the department’s academic standards in order to receive your degree. If you want to take senior-year courses, you must maintain a 2.5 GPA in the following courses, and you cannot fail the same course twice:
