Science Electives for Undergraduate Chemical Engineering Students

The following lists the approved courses for the different science elective tracks in chemical engineering. At least 7 total credit hours of elective courses are required. If there are issues regarding prerequisites for any of these courses, please discuss them with your advisor.

Students taking the Biotechnology CHE electives should take the Biochemistry Science Elective tract, and those taking the Materials Engineering CHE electives take the Physical Chemistry Science Elective tract.

The Science Electives should be taken in the JUNIOR year.
