Chemical Engineering (Arizona State University)
The chemical engineering BSE program at Arizona State University’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering provides students with the opportunity to combine mathematics, science, technology and innovative thinking. This is done through lectures, research, lab work and hands-on experience. This eight-term, 120-hour, program typically takes four years to complete. Students are encouraged to explore across many disciplines in order to come up with cutting-edge ideas.
Students in the program begin with courses such as chemistry, physics, calculus and linear algebra. Once these courses are complete, they go into transport phenomena, applied chemical thermodynamics and chemical engineering design. Students work closely with each other as well as faculty members to develop environmentally friendly products, such as petroleum, biomedical devices, food and agricultural products and many others.
Although students must complete the required courses per the curriculum, they are encouraged to individualize their education plan. This can be done through electives, internships and professional society activities.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
