Engineering Science Degree, Chemical Engineering Area of Concentration

Associate of Science Degree
MC students in chemistry class

Chemical engineers work to design new chemical processes and to improve the efficiency of industrial chemical processes. They also design equipment for use in the chemical industry. Subdivisions of the field include process engineering, polymer science, biochemical engineering, petrochemical engineering, energy conversion, and environmental engineering, to name just a few.

Many chemical engineers ultimately find career opportunities in areas which are quite interdisciplinary, and may be employed in industry, in an academic setting, or by many public and private institutes and agencies.

Program Outcomes

Upon completion of this program a student will be able to:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve basic physics and organic chemistry problems.
  • Analyze and design simple chemical processes.
  • Use appropriate computer applications software in chemical engineering.

Program Advising 

Meet with your academic advisor regularly to make sure you are on track to graduate and/or transfer. The program advising guide outlines the degree requirements and is meant to supplement the advising process. 

Transfer Opportunities

This track will prepare students to transfer to a four-year university with a major in chemical engineering.  See all engineering transfer agreements.

Careers

Career possibilities include postsecondary engineering teacher, civil engineer, microsystems engineer, solar energy systems engineer, and biochemical engineer. Some require a bachelor’s degree. 

Curriculum 

Suggested Course Sequence: Chemical Engineering

A suggested course sequence for full-time students follows.

A suggested course sequence for full-time students follows.

All students should review the advising guide and consult an advisor. Most courses have either assessment levels that must be met or prerequisites (courses that must be taken first). Part-time students and those who need to meet assessment levels or take prerequisite courses will take longer to complete a degree. An advisor will help make sure you are taking your courses in the right order.

All degree-seeking students must take a central group of General Education courses in English, mathematics, arts, behavioral and social sciences, humanities, and science. These courses are included in the suggested course sequence below.
