Option 4.4
D. At least 1 hour, but no more than 4 hours, of the technical electives must be from a course or courses that provide significant experiential or project-centered learning, or focus on creativity and innovation skills. Applicable courses include Ch En 199R (Internship), Ch En 400 (Creativity), Ch En 498R (Mentored Research), and Eng T 497R (Global Engineering Outreach). For a full list of approved courses, see the department webpage. A course taken under this requirement will count toward either the advanced engineering or EMSB requirement above, depending on the department in which it is listed.
Requirement 5
Pass a basic competency exam (L3 exam) administered by the Chemical Engineering Department. All students in the chemical engineering program must pass a competency exam based on the foundational principles of chemical engineering that are taught in the program courses. The exam will be administered during the senior year with the specific dates announced each year by the Chemical Engineering Department. Each fall, the department will supply written rules, guidelines, and reference material to help students prepare to take the exam.
