Chemical engineering (BSE)
Have an interest in aerospace or electronics? What about a passion in environmental issues? A degree in chemical engineering opens the doors to all those areas and more with its diverse avenues of research and studies.
Why chemical engineering?
Biology and biomedical engineering come together to help chemical engineering students deepen their understanding of the processes of life, sustainable energy and maintaining environmental health. Through chemistry, physics and mathematics our students research how to convert raw materials into more useful forms in order to form a better future for us all.
The chemical engineering program at ASU encourages students to individualize their education through course work, research and discovery, cross-discipline exploration, internships and professional society activities.
Chemical engineers are involved in the manufacturing of:
- Petroleum Products
- Computer Chips
4+1 Accelerated degree in chemical engineering
Combining graduate and undergraduate coursework in the accelerated program saves students time and money. The research is rigorous and the work is focused, but students get an enriching educational experience that will prepare them for doctoral studies or industrial positions by earning a BSE and MS in five years.
