Curriculum

B.S. Chemical Engineering Standard Option (B160) 
Flowchart (PDF)

The standard option prepares students for a career in the wide variety of chemical process industries or for graduate engineering studies. Technical electives allow emphasis on energy, materials, process systems, environment, or other areas of interest.

B.S. Chemical Engineering Premedical/Biomedical Engineering Option (B163)
Flowchart (PDF)

The premedical/biomedical engineering option emphasizes preparation for medical school, and/or a focus on engineering related to human health and medicine. Examples of topic areas include tissue engineering, drug delivery, cell interactions, and medical biosensors.

B.S. Chemical Engineering Biotechnology Option (B161)
Flowchart (PDF)

The biotechnology option emphasizes engineering of biological systems not necessarily related to human health and medicine. Examples include: biochemical processing for manufacture of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and fuels; fermentation processes; and genetic engineering.

These programs allow students to obtain both the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in as few as five years. Twelve credits of coursework are simultaneously counted in both programs. These programs can be entered at the start of studies at OU or during the first three years of the B.S. program.

B.S. Chemical Engineering - Standard Option / M.S. Chemical Engineering (A160/F160) 

Students completing these programs will receive two degrees:  the B.S. in Chemical Engineering and the M.S. in Chemical Engineering.   Students must complete an M.S. research thesis in the field of chemical engineering.  This M.S. degree opens opportunities for research and development jobs in the broad field of chemical engineering.

B.S. Chemical Engineering - Biotechnology Option / M.S. Bioengineering (A161/F110 Q063)

Students completing these programs will receive two degrees: the  BS in Chemical Engineering and the MS in Bioengineering.  This program is accelerated because students may double-count (i.e., simultaneously count in both the BS and MS Programs) 12 hours.  Students must complete an M.S. thesis in the field of bioengineering. This M.S. degree opens opportunities for research and development jobs in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and biomedical fields.  

B.S. Chemical Engineering - Pre-Medical/M.S. Biomedical Engineering Option / Bioengineering (A163/F110/Q520) 

Students completing this program will receive two degrees:  BS in Chemical Engineering and MS in Bioengineering.  This program is accelerated because students may double-count (i.e., simultaneously count in both the BS and MS Programs) 12 hours.  Students must complete an M.S. thesis in the field of bioengineering. This M.S. degree opens opportunities for research and development in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and biomedical fields.
