Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering
The chemical engineering program at Stevens prepares students for the conception, synthesis, design, testing, scale-up, operation, control and optimization of industrial chemical processes that impact our well-being. Courses in organic and physical chemistry, biochemical engineering and process control are offered in addition to chemical engineering core courses in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, separations, process analysis, reactor design, and process design.
Even though undergraduate chemical engineering is reputed worldwide to be the most academically rigorous engineering major, over the years our department has produced a disproportionately high number of Stevens valedictorians, a testament to the high quality of students that our programs attract. The undergraduate chemical engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
A minor represents a coherent program of study in a discipline other than the student's major degree program. Successful completion of the chemical engineering minor is recognized on the transcript and with a Minor Certificate at graduation. Recognition is thus provided for a significant educational experience in chemical engineering.
