Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Programs

The Russell School of Chemical Engineering at TU prepares undergraduate students to solve industrial problems through progressive coursework and rigorous design projects with optional research. Chemical engineering is a broad discipline, training individuals to use chemistry, physics, mathematics and engineering for the advancement of mankind and solution of societal problems through technological innovation.

Chemical engineers apply fundamentals of chemistry, biology, physics and mathematics to resolve issues associated with the use of chemicals, fuel, drugs, food and other products. They design operation procedures and manufacturing equipment, test production methods and monitor product performance.

The Russell School of Chemical Engineering curriculum provides fundamental knowledge in science, engineering and chemical engineering principles as well as chemical engineering practice, design and electives. Students may earn a bachelor of science, master of science or doctorate in chemical engineering.
