All tracks lead to the B.S. in Chemical Engineering and require the same chemical engineering core classes. The primary differences are in the science courses and technical electives that are taken. Your advisor can help you decide which track is right for you.

Three tracks allow students to specialize their focus:


prepares students for careers in industries such as chemical processing, food processing, metallurgy, energy conversion, petroleum refining and pharmaceutical production

Biotechnology / Bioengineering

prepares students who are interested in working in the biotechnology industry, pursuing graduate work in biochemical or biomedical engineering or going to medical school

Environmental Engineering & Sustainability

prepares students to apply basic chemical engineering principles in the field of environmental engineering such as cleaning up air and water pollution and managing chemical processes to minimize environmental impact
