Undergraduate Program

The Core Program

Year 1 of the four-year undergraduate program is designed to provide a fundamental background in all areas of engineering. Classroom lessons are reinforced with laboratory studies.

Year 2 focuses on the fundamentals of chemical engineering: chemistry; heat, mass and momentum transfer; and applied mathematics. It also presents opportunities to develop skills in communications. Labs are an important part of the program.

Year 3 the fundamentals are "scaled up" to applications of engineering and chemistry, including hands-on learning in our labs. Emphasis is on the design and economics of industrial units and processes.

Year 4 brings it all together and lets you choose an area of interest. Emphasis is on engineering and applied science applications, as well as on plant design and a research thesis.

You'll share in our research, recognized around the world, in areas such as:

  • Biomolecular and Biomedical Engineering
  • Bioprocess Engineering
  • Engineering Informatics
  • Environmental Science and Engineering
  • Advanced Inorganic Molecular Systems
  • Pulp and Paper
  • Surface and Interface Engineering
  • Sustainable Energy
