Programs

Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers apply the basic principles of chemistry, physics and mathematics to the safe, efficient and environmentally benign development of useful industrial processes and products such as petroleum refining, materials processing, materials recycling, plastics, fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, paints, electronic components and biotechnology.

Upon graduation, chemical engineering majors are prepared for positions in the operation, development, design, construction and management of industrial plants in industries that subject raw materials to chemical and physical changes to produce desirable products, as well as positions in research institutions and government. Students are also well-prepared for graduate and professional school.

Curriculum

Advisors

Students joining the Chemical and Biomedical Engineering programs are advised on course scheduling, academic difficulties, transfer credit evaluation, and University resources by staff in the Statler College Advising Center. More information about the Advising Center can be found at: https://www.statler.wvu.edu/academics/advising-center.

Career and professional advising is handled by faculty members within the CBE Department. We are happy to meet with our students to discuss research opportunities, career options, or academics. The following faculty members are good initial contacts for information about the career questions, extracurricular opportunities, and specific curriculum questions.
