Our Program is Accredited

The B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

As part of ABET accreditation, a program must describe its educational objectives (the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve), and its program outcomes (what students are expected to know or be able to do by the time of graduation from the program).


Life After ChemBE

Approximately half of our chemical and biomolecular engineering undergraduates pursue an advanced degree at top graduate schools in science, engineering, law or business. The other half is in great demand for employment in a variety of settings, including finance, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device companies, consulting, government agencies and medical research. Others become entrepreneurs. Program Outcomes >
