Chemical Engineering

Undergraduate Program

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 which 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.

Programs + Advising

Programs

Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers hold positions in operation, development, design, construction, and management of chemical, environmental, life-science, materials, and other industrial plants.

Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering combines biology, medicine, and engineering principles to develop novel approaches to solve complex problems in medical care, and help design the next generation of medical equipment. Patients who have benefited from the use of the largest MRI machine to the smallest microsurgical tools, from artificial limbs to artificial organs, have biomedical engineers to thank for those discoveries.

Minor in Chemical Engineering

Any student make take a minor in chemical engineering. A GPA of 2.0 or better must be maintained in all required courses.

Biomedical Engineering Certificate Program

The Department of Chemical Engineering at West Virginia University launched the undergraduate certificate in biomedical engineering in the fall semester of 2008.
