General Facts

  • In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. The department core curriculum incorporates these three writing-intensive courses in CHE 332, CHE 333 and CHE 334
  • Students enrolled in the program will receive a degree in Chemical Engineering. There is no biological engineering degree through the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department.
  • The Chemical and Biological Engineering Department does not offer courses for students interested in the Adult Education program, which includes evening and weekend courses. All courses are offered strictly during the day.
  • The Chemical and Biological Engineering Department does not offer a minor in chemical engineering.
  • Registering for a class while on co-op - Students can take up to four free credits of class while on co-op, but cannot add the course to their schedule themselves. If a student wants to take two courses on co-op they must first send written consent from the employer to the academic advisor. They then must send a written acknowledgement to the academic advisor stating they are aware of the tuition increase and billing implications.

Important Notes on Electives and Transfer Credits

BEFORE registering for any General Education courses or free electives, students should consult the Electives section (http://www.drexel.edu/coe/resources/current_undergrad/electives/) on the College of Engineering website.

BEFORE registering for any course outside Drexel for which you plan
to transfer credit into the university, please refer to transfer policies
and complete the Transfer Credit Authorization form.

You must obtain pre-approval for the course or you will not receive credit for it.
