The School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering offers three engineering undergraduate programs, each separately accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, in Chemical Engineering, Bioengineering, and Environmental Engineering. The school also offers graduate programs leading to master of engineering, master of science, and doctor of philosophy degrees.
CBEE's undergraduate programs focus on preparing work- and leadership-ready graduates who will be successful in professional careers in private or public sectors, including industry, government, and consulting, or in continued study engineering and related fields.
Chemical Engineering focuses on the science and engineering of processes to convert raw materials into valued chemicals and products on a manufacturing scale.
Bioengineering applies scientific and engineering principles to the development of new biologics, materials, devices, and processes in the broad areas of bioprocessing, biomedical, and bioenvironmental technology.
Environmental Engineering applies scientific and engineering principles to improve the natural environment, to provide healthy water, air, and soil, and to remediate polluted sites.
Educational objectives and curriculum are described separately for each program. The school has a core undergraduate curriculum with common courses for all three majors, including first-year engineering, process material and energy balances, thermodynamics and transport phenomena, and senior laboratory.For more information on the various programs, course requirements, or course listings, please visit the course catalog for each discipline:
