Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Program

The Chemical Engineering Program at the University of Minnesota is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (  The department graduates about 100 students with bachelor's degrees in Chemical Engineering each year.  The core courses in the Chemical Engineering program are team taught by several faculty members. The organizing professor lectures three times a week to the entire class, and the class is split into smaller recitation sections for twice-weekly discussion and problem-solving meetings with a faculty member. Our team teaching approach puts the students and faculty in closer contact to the mutual benefit of both.
