The Yale Chemical Engineering program is principally focused on basic and engineering sciences, and problem solving. Additional focus is on communication, analysis of experiments, and chemical process design. A special feature of our program is the accessibility of laboratory research -- most Chemical Engineering majors participate in faculty-led research projects, often resulting in publication and/or presentation at national meetings.
Yale Chemical Engineering graduates find a wide range of professional opportunities. Many go on to top graduate programs in Chemical, Biomedical, or Environmental Engineering, or to esteemed medical, law, or business schools. Yale Chemical Engineering majors ultimately become leaders in academia, industry, government, business, and the non-profit sector.
The Department of Chemical Engineering at Yale offers the following two majors:
- ABET-accredited B.S. in Chemical Engineering: This degree program builds on courses in general, organic, and physical chemistry as the foundation for advanced study in the areas of chemical process or products. This major is suited for students who intend to pursue graduate studies in Chemical, Biomedical, or Environmental Engineering. Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
- B.S. in Engineering Sciences (Chemical): This degree program provides a strong background in the discipline while simultaneously offering additional opportunities for students to enroll in courses in other disciplines perhaps in pursuit of a dual degree.
