Students typically must complete at least ten courses. Six of these courses must be in the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department, where at least four of these are chosen from the five CBE core courses: Intermediate Transport Phenomena, Intermediate Problems in Chemical Engineering (i.e. Math), Advanced Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, Kinetics and Catalysis, and Biological Engineering: Molecules, Cells, and Systems, and the other two are CBE electives. Of the remaining four courses, three should be directed towards a Minor requirement (typically 9-12 credits), and one (at least 3 credits) is an elective that must be taken from another program.** Once you have an advisor, it is important to consult them about your planned courses.**
