Academic Advising Freshmen will be advised this Fall by Jane Riggs or Sue Scheff for Spring 2004 In Spring, you will be assigned a Dept advisor for Fall 2004. Transfer students should already have a Dept advisor.
Review of chemical engineering courses • CME 200 – All problems involve processes, feeding things in and taking things out. How do you determine what comes out once you feed something in?- Mass and Energy • CME 320 – Laws that help solve engineering problems, phase equilibria, • CME 415 – How to separate chemicals • CME 425 – Transfer of heat and mass across a system (diffusion, heat addition/removal) • CME 420 – Modeling chemical engineering processes • CME 330 – Flow through pipes, pumps, valves, • CME 470 – Safety and Ethics • CME 550 – Reactors, choosing and designing • CME 462 – Automation control of processes • CME 433 – Lab experience, applying knowledge learned in other classes to experiments. • CME 455/456 – Applying knowledge learned in other classes to designing a chemical engineering process/plant.
Don’t sell your books • You will use information from one course in the next. • Even Calculus, Chemistry and Physics!!
Electives Available • Apply chemical engineering principles to specialized areas • Polymers • Environmental • Bio • Fuel Sciences • Catalysis
Other areas of emphasis integrated throughout the curriculum • Teamwork – Multidisciplinary • Communication – Written and Oral • Life Long Learning
University Studies • Social Science (2 courses in two separate disciplines) • Humanities (2 courses) • Cross Cultural ( 1 course)
Electives • Supportive Elective: Any course that is not more elementary versions of required courses • Technical Elective: List given on page 3 of curriculum sheet • CME Elective: Must have CME prefix • CHE Elective: List given on page 2 of curriculum sheet.
New Course • EGR 199 – Computational Tools for Chemical Engineering • 2 hours – one hour lecture, one hour in computer lab • Pilot stages so it is currently not required but highly recommended. • Replaces CS 221 course • Covers Excel, Maple, Aspen, Numerical Methods.
Do I have to take courses as written on the curriculum? • CME core courses – yes! Courses are usually only offered once per year and are pre-reqs for others. • Other courses – electives and Univ Studies – No!
Engineering Standing Requirement • GPA of 2.7 in CHE 105, 107, MA 113, 114, 213, 214, PHY 231, 232, 241, ENG 101, 102 • Passing grade in CS 221 or EGR 199 (Computational Tools) • “C” or better in CME 200 • Upper division courses starting with CME 415 require Engineering Standing
Graduation Requirements • Must have cumulative GPA of 2.0 or more • Must complete departmental courses and technical electives with GPA of 2.0 or more
Other Academic Requirements • Read Probation and Suspension Rules in your bulletin pg 59 – 60. College of Engineering has additional rules on page 60.
Other OpportunitiesCME 395 • Research on a chemical engineering project • Projects given during registration – Must talk to faculty member first before registering. • Requires engineering standing and other pre-reqs set by faculty member • Can take two times – can only count as CME elective once
Other OpportunitiesEnvironmental Certificate Program 3 required courses - CE 352 Intro. to Environmental Eng. (Supportive Elective) - BIO 208 Principles of Microbiology (Technical Elective) - Organic Chemistry (Already required) 12 hours of electives – 3 hours outside of major - 6 hours count as CME electives - 6 hours of extra courses.
Other OptionsPre-med Curriculum • For students interested in pursuing a medical degree after BS in chemical engineering • Includes courses needed for medical school. • Currently revising curriculum and should be ready soon.
Things that we are working on • Nano-Engineering Certificate Program • Currently under review by College • Emphasis in bioengineering and/or biopharmaceutical engineering • Currently being developed
