Biomedical and Chemical Engineering
The Bioengineering program is designed for students interested in the application of physical science techniques to life-science problems, preparing them for graduate study in bioengineering or medicine as well as for careers in biomedical instrument design, medical device design, orthopedic prosthesis design, or engineering support for healthcare services. Introduced in the student’s first semester and culminating in the senior year with a capstone project, the important topic of engineering design is an integral part of the curriculum.
The Bioengineering curriculum provides a solid foundation in mathematics, chemistry, physics, engineering, and biology in preparation for advanced speciaized studies. In consultation with a faculty advisor, students can specialize their curriculum to emphasize preparation for industry, research, or premedical studies. This curriculum shares several courses with the Chemical Engineering program. These courses provide our students with a strong background in the engineering sciences so they can explore emerging topics at the interface of the two fields. Students interested in research with the possibility of continued study in graduate school are encouraged to elect one or more independent study projects and a graduate-level course in an area of research interest. With the careful selection of electives, a student can meet the entrance requirements established by the Association of American Medical Colleges.

Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes
The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Chemical Engineering is a program designed to prepare students to hold leadership positions in chemical engineering, continue their education through advanced study, and appreciate the impact of engineering on society. Graduates will have mastered the chemical engineering fundamentals necessary to serve as practicing engineers and will be prepared for further studies in engineering, science, or other professions.
The chemical engineering curriculum prepares students to apply the fundamentals of chemistry, physics, and engineering to problems related to the efficient and safe production of chemical and related products. A minimum of 128 credit hours is required for the completion of the BS degree. Students are introduced to the engineering method for problem solving, and concepts in engineering design, with the complexity and open-endedness of the problems increasing their sophomore, junior, and senior years. In their senior year courses, students are required to complete major design projects in their courses and laboratories. The BS degree is designed to be completed in four years.
