The Department of Chemical Engineering strives for nationally recognized excellence in engineering education and research by using modern, hands-on, and active learning experiences to prepare undergraduate students for professional success, and to hold paramount the safety, health, and welfare of the public and protect the environment in performance of their professional duties. The Department of Chemical Engineering produces engineers with a strong foundation of technical, communication, teamwork, and problem-solving skills required for professional success, consistent with the following objectives: 1. Pursue careers where they apply their engineering and problem-solving skills. 2. Pursue advanced studies or other forms of continuing education. 3. Value their UMD chemical engineering education and endorse the program and its students. This four-year baccalaureate (B.S.Ch.E.) degree program emphasizes the development of the student's ability to analyze and design chemical processing systems. By the end of the program, the student must demonstrate the ability to solve engineering problems, a sensitivity to the social and environmental impacts of the engineering profession, and the ability to maintain a high level of competency. Chemical engineering graduates are qualified for employment in diverse industries, ranging from those that manufacture inorganic chemicals, petrochemicals, plastics, synthetic fibers, paper and pulp, and pharmaceuticals to those that process minerals, materials, and hazardous wastes. Graduates are qualified for assignments that include plant operations, process development, process control, project engineering, or technical sales, and frequently pursue engineering management later in their careers. They are also well qualified to continue with professional or graduate education. The chemical engineering curriculum is based on fundamental sciences including physics, chemistry, and mathematics; traditional chemical engineering sciences such as material and energy balance, transport phenomena, and thermodynamics; and chemical engineering design courses such as reaction engineering, separations, and unit operations, with a capstone design course during the senior year. Students have an opportunity to become involved in research, through either the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program or the department honors program. Honors Requirement: To graduate with department honors, students must have a minimum 3.50 GPA and be nominated by the chemical engineering faculty.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
Students may declare a chemical engineering major as freshmen or sophomores. Students must complete the majority of the program's lower division requirements (freshman and sophomore years), including CHE 2111, CHEM 2541, MATH 3280, and PHYS 2015 and 2016, before applying for admission to upper division (junior and senior years). Successful completion of CHE 2111 (with a grade of C+ or better) is required for admission to upper division. Admission is competitive and applicants are admitted on a space-available basis, with priority determined by the cumulative GPA in engineering, physics, mathematics, and chemistry through CHEM 2541.
For information about University of Minnesota admission requirements, visit the Office of Admissions website.
General Requirements
The Board of Regents, on recommendation of the faculty, grants degrees from the University of Minnesota. Requirements for an undergraduate degree from University of Minnesota Duluth include the following:
  1. Students must meet all course and credit requirements of the departments and colleges or schools in which they are enrolled including an advanced writing course. Students seeking two degrees must fulfill the requirements of both degrees. However, two degrees cannot be awarded for the same major.
  2. Students must complete all requirements of the Liberal Education Program.
  3. Students must complete a minimum of 120 semester credits.
  4. At least 30 of the last 60 degree credits earned immediately before graduation must be awarded by UMD.
  5. Students must complete at least half of their courses at the 3xxx-level and higher at UMD. Study-abroad credits earned through courses taught by UM faculty and at institutions with which UMD has international exchange programs may be used to fulfill this requirement.
  6. If a minor is required, students must take at least three upper division credits in their minor field from UMD.
  7. The minimum cumulative UM GPA required for graduation will be 2.00 and will include only University of Minnesota coursework. A minimum UM GPA of 2.00 is required in each UMD undergraduate major and minor. No academic unit may impose higher grade point standards to graduate.
  8. Diploma, transcripts, and certification will be withheld until all financial obligations to the University have been met.
