Undergraduate Curriculum Information

Two Chemical Engineering degree options are offered at Yale.

  1. ABET-accredited B.S. in Chemical Engineering: This degree program builds on courses in general, organic, and physical chemistry as the foundation for advanced study in the areas of chemical process or products.  This major is suited for students who intend to pursue graduate studies in Chemical, Biomedical, or Environmental Engineering. Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
  2. B.S. in Engineering Sciences (Chemical): This degree program provides a strong background in the discipline while simultaneously offering additional opportunities for students to enroll in courses in other disciplines perhaps in pursuit of a dual degree.

Examples of typical course sequences are presented below.  Consultation with the program’s Director of Undergraduate Studies is expected to ensure the correct courses are taken by each enrolled student. 

The Yale College requirements for the B.A. and B.S. degrees can be found here.  The specific Chemical Engineering degree requirements are detailed here.
