Undergraduate Admissions

Welcome to the CEE department, where students receive an ABET-accredited undergraduate degree in chemical engineering or environmental engineering. Unique to these programs is the course design sequence with nearly every undergraduate course being accompanied by a hands-on laboratory component so classroom theory is immediately applied in the lab.

All undergraduate students receive personal attention from staff advisors or faculty mentors throughout their academic careers. Most junior and senior undergraduates participate in cutting-edge research activities in faculty labs, at one of the College’s interdisciplinary research centers, or during internships with industry or agencies. In addition, our students have access to numerous resources through BCOE including academic assistance, study and time management workshops, career guidance, professional development training, membership in professional societies and social activities.
