All chemical engineering majors are expected to consult the catalog and handbook before planning their course selections.
The department’s handbook contains the admissions requirements, program description, academic advising guidelines, general departmental regulations and policies, academic integrity guidelines, special opportunities, related student organizations, graduation tips, curriculum guide, course descriptions, lists of approved electives and faculty profiles of the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Department.
All chemical engineering majors are expected to consult this handbook before planning their course selections. This will greatly aid in making appropriate selections; however, it does not replace the role of the academic advisor. Additionally, students should consult the UMBC Undergraduate Catalog for topics not covered in this booklet.
The responsibility for proper registration and for satisfying prerequisites for any course rests with the student, as does the responsibility for proper achievement in courses in which the student is enrolled. Each student should be familiar with the provisions of this catalog, including the academic regulations.
It is strongly recommended that every chemical engineering student satisfy the mathematics, chemistry and physics requirements as early as possible in their program.
To be eligible for a bachelor's degree in engineering, a student must have an overall average of at least a "C" (2.0) and a grade of "C" or better in all engineering courses. Responsibility for knowing and meeting all degree requirements for graduation rests with the student.
The Chemical and Biochemical Engineering department publishes a handbook [link to UG Handbook] which gives the detailed regulations and policies in the department. Students are urged to obtain this handbook in order to aid their planning of a chemical engineering education at UMBC.
