Chemical engineers accept the challenges of creating better and safer products for the home and for industry, developing new resources of energy, and fighting pollution while preserving our environment and natural resources.



The University of Alabama’s Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering offers a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering. As part of the curriculum, you will earn the equivalent of minors in chemistry and math. In addition, other required courses in engineering prepare you for the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, the first step in professional registration. Technical electives give you a chance to specialize in an area of interest, such as biology, materials processing or business.

It is a rigorous and demanding curriculum designed to shape students into the kinds of people who understand as much as possible about their world and their roles in it.
