Program Overview

Take the next steps in your career with Concordia's Chemical Engineering program. Chemical Engineering is a discipline that involves transforming raw materials and chemicals into useful products through processes that are safe, sustainable and economical. Chemical Engineers address many challenges to benefit the society- for example, energy, clean water, food, oil, healthcare. You have heard of catalytic converters in vehicles. That's chemical engineering applied to an environmental problem. Desalination of sea water is an example of scientific breakthrough by chemical engineers. With foundation in chemistry, physics and math, the curriculum includes material and energy balances, thermodynamics, separation processes, fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, chemical reaction kinetics, reactor design, process dynamics and control, process safety to prepare you for a versatile career to improve your community and world around you.

Our program will provide students with technical and creative problem-solving skills that meet professional expectations. The curriculum will be grounded in a Christian approach to prepare students to be Christ-centered engineers that will help build safer and more efficient workplaces in the world.

The mission of Chemical Engineering is to positively affect communities by developing Christ-centered engineers who create a safer and healthier world by applying best practices, modern techniques, and innovation to their vocations. The vision of all Engineering programs at Concordia is to produce Christ-centered Engineers with strong analytical, design and laboratory experiences, ready for industry or advanced study, who will positively affect communities by integrating their faith and learning.

 A bachelor’s degree from Concordia in chemical engineering can prepare you for a promising career. We prepare students to enter the workforce as chemical engineers, health and safety engineers, pharmaceutical biologics engineers, and so many more professions.

What to Expect
The Chemical Engineering program consists of 133 credits, completed over eight semesters. Students will practice skills with hands-on experiential learning opportunities in modern labs, under the supervision of qualified and experienced faculty. Students will complete a capstone design project and are strongly encouraged to complete an internship. The total typical time to complete the program is four years. No minor will be required for chemical engineering students as the program is credit heavy.
