B.S. Portion of the Program Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org

In order to progress in your curriculum in the Gallogly College of Engineering, and as a specific graduation requirement, a grade of C or better is required in each course in the curriculum, including all prerequisite courses. Chemical engineering courses are sequential and usually offered only in the semester shown; note prerequisites.

Students must be admitted to the accelerated program before the beginning of the senior year. Students are eligible for graduate status upon graduation with the Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering.

Up to 13 hours of graduate-level CH E and/or science, math, engineering or technical courses (as approved by the graduate liaison) are shared/double-counted and fulfill requirements in both the B.S. and M.S. portions of the Accelerated Degree Program.

Two college-level courses in a single world language are required; this may be satisfied by successful completion of 2 years in a single world language in high school. Students who must take a language at the University will have an additional 6-10 hours of coursework.

Courses designated as Core I, II, III, IV or V are part of the General Education curriculum. Students must complete a minimum of 40 hours of General Education courses, chosen from the approved list.
