Chemical Engineering is the profession in which a knowledge of mathematics, chemistry, and the other natural sciences gained by study, experience, and practice is applied with judgment to develop economic ways of using materials and energy for the benefit of mankind. The program required for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering provides fundamental instruction in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and engineering. This education prepares the graduate to seek employment in petroleum refineries, the manufacturing of synthetic fibers, steel mills, paper mills, ore processing, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. Also, he or she may be found in related areas of design, nuclear energy, and pollution abatement, as well as management. If the graduate prefers, he or she is adequately prepared to pursue additional studies in a graduate program.
Chemical engineering students are required to take the Chemical Engineering discipline specific Fundamentals of Engineering examination of Alabama or another state prior to graduation. All electives must be approved by the student’s advisor. Degree requirements include a minimum of 18 semester hours of approved electives in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
Satisfactory completion of the 128 hour program outlined below leads to a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. Students must also comply with the College of Engineering Requirements for a Degree which are covered in the Bulletin under College of Engineering.
 
Program Educational Objectives Produce Graduates who:
• Are prepared to begin working in an environment that requires problem solving skills, often utilizing a team based approach.
• Can apply technical knowledge that is fundamental to the practice of chemical engineering, using techniques, skills and modern engineering tools as appropriate.
Have strength in the application of modern computational techniques to the solution of chemical engineering problems.
As an emphasis, are prepared to function as a chemical engineer in the traditional chemical and petroleum process industries, especially in the Gulf Coast region.
Demonstrate proficiency in written, graphical, and oral communications.
Realize the importance of the continual development of knowledge and skills after graduation.
Have an education that prepares them for a productive and rewarding life, including an appreciation for professional, business and ethical responsibilities.
 
The Bachelor of Science program in Chemical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone: (410) 347-7700.
