The Jasper Department of Chemical Engineering

The University of Texas at Tyler

Chemical engineers are concerned with the application and control of processes leading to changes in chemical composition.

Students in the bachelor of science in chemical engineering degree program will have the option of pursuing one of four concentrations.

  • Biochemical engineering manufacturing and production processes
  • Energy, including petroleum and natural gas production and processing
  • Environmental contamination and remediation
  • Materials manufacturing and process design

Chemical engineers have a strong foundation in chemistry, physics, mathematics and basic engineering. Courses include thermodynamics, transport phenomena, mass transfer operations, materials engineering, process dynamics and control, kinetics and plant design.

Students will have the opportunity to operate small-scale equipment and the program will strive to build strong partnerships with local industry in order to provide a practice-based approach to learning.
