Honors Concentration


The honors concentration encourages highly motivated students to experience a more rigorous preparation in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Admission is selective, and application to the honors concentration is made when the student applies for upper-division status.

Candidates for the honors chemical engineering concentration must complete the following requirements.

  • First-year courses for honors concentrations in the engineering majors.
  • Further requirements for the honors chemical engineering concentration are as follows. Maintain an overall GPA of at least 3.3 and a GPA of at least 3.3 in departmental courses. Complete CHEM 483 ; CBE 407 , CBE 447 , and one of the following: CBE 467 , CBE 488 , CBE 498 . Complete a 3-hour senior design course. This requirement is satisfied by  .
  • If participating in only the Chancellor's Honors Program, the Honors-by-Contract paperwork goes to the Chancellor's Honors Office on campus during the first 10 days of the semester. If participating in Engineering Honors and not Chancellor's Honors, the Honors-by-Contract paperwork is submitted the first 10 days of the semester to the engineering major department. If participating in both Chancellor's and Engineering Honors, the Honors-by-Contract paperwork is submitted to both areas.
