Overview

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE) offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Chemical Engineering.  General department policies on admission and grading, as well as detailed descriptions of the degree programs may be found on the department Undergraduate and Graduate pages.


In the Fall 2014 term the former Department of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering reformed into two departments:  Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, and Department of Nuclear Engineering.  Beginning with the Spring 2015 term, courses offered under the subject code of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering (CHNE) will be offered under one of two new subject codes:  Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE), and Nuclear Engineering (NE).  Refer to the table below to determine the new subject code and course number for courses offered previously under CHNE.
