Chemical Engineering Degree

Bachelor of Science (BS) in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers use all tools of other engineering disciplines plus applied chemistry. This makes the chemical engineering field one of the most diverse, if not the most diverse, engineering discipline of all. Chemical engineers use chemicals, materials, and energy to design systems, processes, and products that benefit humankind. 

Students in The University of Texas Permian Basin Chemical Engineering program will work in diverse, multi-disciplinary teams and develop leadership skills, ethical standards, environmental concerns and social awareness. Upon completion of the program, students will have the opportunity to obtain licensure as a professional engineer.
