Chemical Engineering - Degrees & Policies

Advisement

Multiple offices play a role in student advisement. During the first year and a half of the program, the senior academic advisors in the Office of Undergraduate Education, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, located in 410 Bonner Hall, assist students in choosing courses. Throughout the undergraduate experience, this office provides support regarding general education requirements, transfer credits, and basic math and science coursework. During the Fall semester of the sophomore year students obtain a CBE faculty advisor. The primary roles of the CBE faculty advisor are to assist students in choosing courses to complete their degree requirements in a timely fashion with a manageable workload and to provide general advice concerning employment opportunities, career specialization, graduate school, and other academic and professional issues. The CBE Director of Undergraduate Studies should be contacted for help with specialized issues, such as study abroad.

Degrees Offered

Undergraduate: BS
Combined: BS/MBA

Transfer Policy

Transfer students must first apply to the university and meet the university transfer admission requirements. For admission of transfer students to engineering, see the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Transfer Policy section.

SUNY Seamless Transfer Path

SUNY Seamless Transfer is a SUNY-wide program intended to make transferring to UB and other SUNY Schools simple and efficient for SUNY students. SUNY has defined courses that SUNY students can take before transferring which will apply to the major at UB and ensure timely graduation.

Information about the Transfer Path for this major can be found on the SUNY Website.

Students are encouraged to contact their academic advisor or department to discuss how their coursework will apply to their degree.

Chemical Engineering - B.S.

Acceptance Criteria

See the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Acceptance Information section.

Advising Notes

Students must meet minimum GPA requirements in engineering as specified by the Dean of Engineering to graduate from the program. See the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Academic Requirements section.

Students must satisfy a departmental residency requirement that stipulates that a maximum of five courses from another school may be used as substitutes for required (16 total) and elective (2 total) CE courses. CBE places no limits (beyond those already imposed by the University and School of Engineering) on the number of BIO, CHE, MTH, PHY, EAS, general technical electives, and general education transfer credits that are applied to BS degree requirements.
