Bachelor of Science

The degree program for the Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering allows for students to select an area of study that will best match their interests. Students can select to participate in one of the many special emphasis areas. The courses required in the Freshman Year are common for all College of Engineering degree plans.

In all cases, it is the student’s responsibility to check his/her degree evaluation and to complete all academic requirements of the major. Declared upper level students can access their degree audit using Degree Evaluation through the Howdy web portal. Lower level students will need to run a “What If” evaluation. You will use your entry year, select BS CHEN as degree, Chemical Engineering as department. Run the evaluation using the current term courses with a detailed view.
