Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering Carbon Research

Chemical Engineering

Create a reaction. As a chemical engineering major, you will apply the principles of the sciences, economics and human relations to develop new products and processes, as well as design, build and supervise facilities that convert raw materials into useful products and services.

Program Overview

Our chemical engineering program provides you with fundamental science and engineering skills, applied engineering knowledge and major laboratory experience culminating in a real-world design experience. This technical competence, combined with a significant general education experience, results in a well-rounded education that prepares you for success in work, graduate school or professional school.

Three major laboratory courses give you hands-on experience with real-life problems — and solutions. Through technical electives, you can obtain a minor or concentration in one of many engineering specialties such as energy, environmental, materials or bioengineering. Courses in fuel cells and alternative energy further enhance your knowledge and can lead to a concentration in energy systems. Premedical school preparation is also part of our program, giving you the foundation you need to pursue a medical degree.

The chemical engineering program at the University of Dayton is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone: 410-347-7700.
