In addition to the accredited Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering, another choice is to pursue the course of study leading to the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (Chemical Engineering).

This degree serves students who wish to be exposed to key chemical engineering principles yet seek a more flexible curriculum. In addition to the general requirements for a McKelvey Applied Science Degree, the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (Chemical Engineering) requires 18 units of chemical engineering core courses from the following list:

  • Engineering Analysis of Chemical Systems (EECE201)
  • Thermodynamics I in EECE (EECE 203)
  • Process Analysis and Thermodynamics (EECE 205)
  • Thermodynamics II in EECE (EECE 204)
  • Materials Science (EECE 305)
  • Mass Transfer Operations (EECE 304)
  • Transport Phenomena I: Basics and Fluid Mechanics (EECE 301)
  • Transport Phenomena II: Mass Transfer (EECE 302)
  • Transport Phenomena III: Energy Transfer Processes (EECE 303)
  • Transport Phenomena II: Energy and Mass Transfer (EECE 307)
  • Chemical Process Dynamics and Control (EECE 401)
  • Chemical Reaction Engineering (EECE 403)
  • Unit Operations Laboratory (EECE 405)
  • Process Design, Economics, and Simulation (EECE 409)
  • ChE Capstone (EECE 402)

*EECE 205 replaces the two-course sequence of EECE 201 and 203. Thus, a student may not count EECE 205 in combination with EECE 201 or EECE 203 towards the Applied Science (Chemical Engineering) degree.

**EECE 307 replaces the two-course sequence of EECE 302 and EECE 303. Thus, a student may not count EECE 307 in combination with EECE 302 or EECE 303 towards the Applied Science (Chemical Engineering) degree.
