The School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering (CBEE) offers three engineering undergraduate programs, each separately accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET): Chemical Engineering (CHE), Bioengineering (BIOE), and Environmental Engineering (ENVE). The goals of the CBEE undergraduate program are consistent with the mission and goals of the College of Engineering, and focus on creating work- and leadership-ready graduates who will be successful in professional careers as a chemical engineer, bioengineer, or environmental engineer in the private or public sectors, including industry, government, and consulting, as well as for continued graduate study in the same or closely related fields.

Chemical engineering (CHE) is the engineering discipline that focuses on the science and engineering of processes to convert raw materials into valued chemicals and products on a manufacturing scale.

Bioengineering (BIOE) is an interdisciplinary field that applies scientific and engineering principles to the development of new biologics, materials, devices, and processes in the broad areas of bioprocess, biomedical, and bioenvironmental technology.

Environmental engineering (ENVE) is the engineering discipline that applies scientific and engineering principles to improve the natural environment, to provide healthy water, air, and land, and to remediate polluted sites.

The educational objectives and curriculum are described separately for each CHE, BIOE, and ENVE program. The school has a core undergraduate curriculum where CHE, BIOE, and ENVE students take common courses in first through senior years, including first-year engineering, process material and energy balances, thermodynamics and transport phenomena, and senior year laboratory.

The school also offers one graduate program in chemical engineering leading to MEng, MS, and PhD degrees.
