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 students will normally be participating in the Chancellor’s Honors Program as well. Application to the honors concentrations is made when the student applies for upper-division status.

Candidates for the honors chemical engineering concentration and the honors biomolecular 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 and the honors biomolecular 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 MATH 247 ; 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  .
