Chemical Engineering

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Course descriptions

Chemical Engineering majors are required to complete the following:

  • CHEG 2103, 2111, 3112, 3123, 3124, 3145, 3151, 4139, 4140, 4143W, and 4147;
  • CHEG Electives (six credits minimum);
  • CHEM 1128Q (or 1148Q), 2443, 2444, 2446; ENGR 1166; MATH 2110Q and 2410Q;
  • Professional/Engineering Requirements (nine credits);┬áProfessional requirements are satisfied by any 2000 level engineering, science or math courses, except ME 2233, due to the significant overlap in content. Engineering requirements are satisfied by any 2000 level engineering course, except ME 2233, due to the significant overlap in content;
  • Elective courses (five credits).

Selection of Professional Requirements courses must include engineering design work as detailed in the Chemical Engineering Guide to Course Selection.

At least three credits of Professional Requirements must be outside of Chemical Engineering. A maximum of six credits of independent chemical engineering research credits may be applied toward degree requirements.

The Chemical Engineering undergraduate program educational objectives are that our alumni/ae: our graduates will be gainfully employed in chemical engineering or related career paths including industrial, academic, governmental and non-governmental organizations. Our graduates will continue their professional development by engaging in professional activities and/or training to enhance their careers and/or pursue post-graduate studies.

Students admitted as first-year students to the school of engineering may transfer, at most, one core (non-elective) 3000 (CHEG 3112, 3123, 3124, 3128, 3145, 3151) or 4000 (CHEG 4139, 4140, 4142, 4143W, 4147) level chemical engineering course from an ABET accredited program at another university. Students transferring to UConn after their first year from another university will have previous credits earned transferred via the University transfer credit rules, but any credits earned once at UConn are subject to the same restriction above.

The Chemical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
