Students are required to take ChE 151 ab, ChE 152, ChE/Ch 164, ChE/Ch 165, and an additional course from a designated list, selected in consultation with his/her adviser. Each student is required to complete either a subject minor, or a general program of courses outside chemical engineering consisting of at least 54 units.

The choice of the 54 units is subject to certain guidelines and restrictions included in the chemical engineering graduate studies guide. The general program of courses must be approved in advance by the option representative. It is intended that the courses chosen should constitute some integrated program of study rather than a randomly chosen collection of courses outside chemical engineering.

Within these guidelines, the only course specifically excluded is research in another option. A grade of C or better is required in any course, and a grade-point average of at least 3.0 is expected. The requirements for a subject minor in any option are listed in this catalog.
