Undergraduate Chemical Engineering

Opportunities and Activities

National honor societies, professional organizations, service clubs, sororities and fraternities, the School of Engineering provides students with opportunities to learn and achieve outside of the classroom. We recognize our students' talents and provide opportunities and activities for advanced learning and experiences — and fun.  We work closely with alumni and private business leaders to supply ongoing opportunities and to continue the cycle of education and service in the engineering community.

Go Beyond the Classroom.

Bachelor's Plus Master's Program (BPM)
The BPM program makes it easy to earn an M.S. degree by linking your University of Dayton undergraduate and graduate programs.  Interested University undergraduate students must have a 3.0 grade point average and apply for the BPM program during their undergraduate program. They should also apply directly to the graduate program of their choice.  If accepted, students can apply up to two courses taken at the graduate level during their undergraduate years to both their undergraduate and graduate programs. This reduces the number of required classes for an M.S. degree from 10 to 8. In addition, the cost of tuition for BPM students is about 2/3 the normal cost of tuition during their first 12 months of their M.S. program.  Go to the BMP Application and Requirements (DOC) >>

Cooperative Education
Gain hands-on experience and apply the concepts you learn in class by alternating semesters of full-time study at UD with semesters of full-time, paid work experience in industry, business or government.

CORE Program
The Core Program offers an innovative, interdisciplinary curriculum consisting of a sequence of courses that fulfills many University general education requirements. The courses address a common theme, "Human Values in a Pluralistic Culture" and are coordinated, so students experience the integrated character of liberal arts.

Education Abroad
Expand your horizons — study abroad for a summer, a semester or during a year-long program. Experience international service or international academics — designed for engineers.

ETHOS
In the ETHOS service program, students help integrate technology with global cultures and communities. The emphasis is placed on ideas and implementation of appropriate technology, sustainable development and service-learning through technical immersion, integrated classroom work, collaborative research and on-campus activities.

Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam
The FE Exam is typically the first step to obtaining a Professional Engineer (P.E.) license.
