Program Overview

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering offers an accredited B.S. in Chemical Engineering degree. There are four tracks the student may select, with the difference being in the topic focus of the technical electives. The materials track requires the student to select a portion of their electives from a list of upper-level science and engineering courses related to the materials science and engineering area.
 

Admissions Information

Freshman/First-Year Admission

ACT and grade requirements are the same as the general University guidelines. Students should take four years of mathematics and a year of chemistry and physics if possible

Change of Program Policy

Students must have an overall GPA greater than 2.0 at Ohio University, for all courses in Russ College, and for all courses in Chemical Engineering. Students must have succeeded in all required courses taken previously in three or fewer attempts. For some courses, success means a grade of at least a C or C-.

External Transfer Admission

In addition to University guidelines, students should have earned a C or better grade in a college math course equivalent to MATH 1200 or higher and a C or better grade in a chemistry course equivalent to CHEM 1210 or higher or a physics course equivalent to PHYS 2001 or higher.
 

Opportunities Upon Graduation

Students earning a B.S. in Chemical Engineering are prepared to enter a manufacturing job in areas such as, but not limited to bulk or specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, petroleum, alternative fuels, plastics or materials. Areas such as production, quality control, environmental protection, or process design are common. Others are involved with sales, marketing, or management. Still others are more devoted to fundamental or applied research, whether in industry, academia, national laboratories, or regulatory agencies. Students who complete the materials track will be particularly suited for a position in a materials related industry, lab, or agency.
