College of EngineeringChemical EngineeringAcademicsUndergraduate
The instructional mission of the Department of Chemical Engineering is to provide chemical engineering graduates with the tools, skills and competencies necessary to understand and apply today's technologies and, through life-long learning, successfully develop and employ tomorrow's technologies.
The program is specially designed to assure all students have demonstrated capabilities in the core chemical engineering topics including material and energy balances, thermodynamics, chemical equilibria, heat, mass and momentum transfer, chemical reaction engineering, continuous and stagewise separation operations, process dynamics, statistics and control.
The design experience is interwoven throughout the curriculum from elementary design principles in material and energy balances to the capstone senior process design and process control sequence employing advanced computer process and control simulators and experimental control systems.
An online student handbook is available describing the academic policies, learning resources and many other topics relevant to the undergraduate chemical engineering program (see left sidebar).
The chemical engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The AU Bulletin lists the University Core Curriculum requirements for students in the College of Engineering. Students must complete a sequence in either Literature or History. Because of the disciple specific requirements for the Humanities courses, it is recommended that a History sequence be completed in the Social Sciences courses.
Electives, Technical Electives: See adviser for approved course listing. At least three (3) hours of Technical Electives must be coursework considered as Engineering Topics.
CHEM 1110, 1111, 1120 and 1121 are preferred, but CHEM 1030, 1031, 1040 and 1041 are acceptable substitutes. Honors sections of all courses will be accepted for this curriculum.
