Students can earn a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. The program's curriculum provides students with a background of fundamental knowledge that prepares them for immediate engineering practice. It places major emphasis on mathematics, chemistry and engineering sciences in addition to courses in design and analysis.
Alumni of the Chemical Engineering program will be work-ready engineers, problem solvers, responsible professionals, and interdisciplinary collaborators. Specifically, based on the needs of the program’s constituencies, within a few years of graduation chemical engineering alumni will have:
The graduates of the OSU Chemical Engineering Program must demonstrate that they have:
Among the many unique opportunities open to OSU chemical engineering students is the Multiple Engineering Cooperative Program (MECOP). The program offers students a high quality, paid industrial experience and related academic activities while pursuing a degree at OSU. We also encourage students to seek registration as a professional engineer. This process begins by successfully passing the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (FE exam), which is normally held in April and late October.
More information about the chemical engineering program for undergraduate students can be found on the School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering Advising Page. You may also review Academic Regulations and Procedures found in the Schedule of Classes and the Oregon State University Bulletin: General Catalog. It is intended to aid students in planning and completing programs leading to a degree. The guide provides information regarding the undergraduate curriculum, professional practice, advising, admissions policies.
