Undergraduate FAQ

 

Undergraduate Program Overview

Undergraduate students in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering share with faculty a congenial atmosphere and an excitement for the ever-expanding range of processes and technologies which are based on chemical and biomolecular engineering principles.

Small class sizes allow close contact and frequent exchanges between professors and students on a one-to-one basis. Undergraduate research opportunities are regularly available with many faculty research groups. Emphasis on the basics of chemistry, biomolecular and engineering science is the key to the great flexibility and power offered by a degree in chemical and biomolecular engineering in a rapidly changing technological environment. Penn's chemical engineering curriculum is designed to ensure that every student receives thorough training in fundamental concepts of permanent relevance and the physical, biotechnological, and chemical principles underlying the engineering profession.
