Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering

Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering provides expertise in addressing a variety of environmental challenges built on fundamentals in engineering, chemical, biological, and ecological principles. The coursework is designed to prepare students to tackle interconnected challenges in water, energy, air quality, and related fields, through chemical engineering skills in the engineering and control of processes involving chemicals that impact our environment, exploring ways to reduce acid rain and smog; to recycle and reduce wastes; to develop new sources of environmentally clean energy; and to design inherently safe, efficient, and “green” processes.

Innovative Curriculum

Students have the option of selecting from several minors to complement their degree and personalize their path. Students can select from minors in the department, in other engineering departments, or from across the university.

The Accelerated Master’s Degree PlusOne program allows current undergraduate students to accelerate the attainment of the master’s degree by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Current students apply to enroll in the PlusOne program. Students attain their bachelor’s degree followed by a PlusOne year to complete the master’s degree.

Students currently earning a BS in Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering can select from the PlusOne pathways available for BS in Chemical Engineering students.

Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is the heart of a Northeastern education, combining rigorous coursework with hands-on experience in the classroom, in the lab, and in the field—locally and abroad. With our signature cooperative education (co-op) program, students typically gain six months of work experience integrated as part of the educational program. Both five-year, three-co-op and four-year, two-co-op program options are available.
