Chemical Engineering — ABM

Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Curriculum for Chemical Engineering

The Chemical Engineering Accelerated Bachelor's/Master's Program (ABM) provides an opportunity for highly motivated undergraduate students to gain a depth of understanding and experience of chemical engineering beyond that of typical bachelor's level graduates. The ABM program allows these exceptional students to count up to 9 hours toward both the bachelor's and master's degrees.

The Bachelor of Chemical Engineering undergraduate major can lead to a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (thesis or non-thesis) in the ABM track. Please see the Department of Chemical Engineering website for additional information.

Senior Year for Students in ABM Program - Chemical Engineering 

CHEN 6xxx/7xxx elective courses are approved courses that can be taken in the ABM program that replace CHEN electives at the undergraduate level.

Courses marked with an asterisk are those used by students enrolled in the ABM program to meet nine undergraduate hours during their senior year and nine graduate hours to be used toward their graduate degree.
