- Undergraduate program
Over the course of our undergraduate program, you will acquire a strong base of knowledge in basic science and mathematics, build to a deep knowledge of engineering science, and finally to chemical engineering design. Moreover, our lab courses emphasize projects where students work on innovative ideas, and decide what equipment to build or use in order to bring those ideas to life.
