chemical engineering

This program is intended for students interested in obtaining a B.A. in Chemistry (from SLU) and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering (from Washington University, St. Louis).

Chemistry academic courses are offered in English at SLU-Madrid. Spanish and international students normally enroll in our intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) program during their first year of study.

What is Chemical Engineering?

Chemical engineering is about gaining fundamental knowledge about a substance and using that knowledge to come up with a solution to an important medical, mechanical or social problem. Our chemical engineering undergraduates study the use of scientific discoveries, modern technologies and novel products to benefit society; they also learn how to minimize the impact on the environment.

Chemical Engineering Program Objectives

  • Prepare students to pursue scientific and technical careers in chemical engineering positions in industry or government.
  • Prepare students to pursue ongoing education through graduate studies in related engineering fields, as well as law, business or management.
  • Empower students to meet the needs of society in solving technical problems using engineering principles, tools and practices.

Unique Features of this Program

Chemical engineering is a dual degree program to be completed over the course of five years: two years at SLU-Madrid, one year at SLU in St. Louis, and two years at Washington University in St. Louis. It requires coursework in chemistry, mathematics, physics, computer science and the arts. The curriculum includes a concentration of courses in chemistry, including lecture courses and laboratory activities.

  • First-year students start by gaining a broad basis in science and general arts subjects.
  • The majority of the faculty members have terminal degrees and are performing cutting-edge research in chemistry.
  • The degree awarded at the end of this program is a B.A. in Chemistry from SLU and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis.
  • The chemistry curriculum is professionally accredited by the American Chemical Society (ACS).
  • The chemical engineering curriculum is professionally accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (EAC of ABET).
