The CHBE programs share foundations in chemistry, biology, physics and mathematics, a core of engineering science courses and courses on technical communications, and complementary studies.

In their third year, CHBE students are provided with the opportunity to tour industrial operations to view the practical applications of what they learned in the classroom, meet industry professionals in their work environment and learn about different career opportunities

Both CHBE programs culminates in a Capstone Project, a significant design and economic assessment of a process in chemical and/or biological engineering.
