Chemical Engineering - Biological Track

In order to complete the Chemical Engineering - Biological Track, the student must complete:

  1. All specific courses currently required for the chemical engineering degree,

  2. CHE 4800, Biochemical Engineering, and CHE 4830, Applied Molecular and Cellular Biology. All Chemical Engineering majors are required to take one of these two courses. Both would be required to complete the track.

  3. Three courses of at least three hours each, from the approved list for that track (see details below).

Because both CHE 4800 and CHE 4830 are required for this track, the technical elective requirement is lowered from 21 hours to 18 hours, and the number of technical elective hours that must be chemical engineering courses is reduced from six to three.

Some of the courses in the file linked to below have prerequisites listed within parentheses that differ from those listed in the catalog. These courses have occasionally been accepted as alternates to those prerequisites listed in the catalog. The acceptance of alternate prerequisites is at the discretion of the individual course instructor. In general, other RCENT departments have accepted CHE courses in thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid flow in place of their courses. It is the responsibility of the student to check with individual instructors about course prerequisites.

Information provided in the file linked to below is based upon published information in the Ohio University undergraduate catalogue and recent class schedules. Appearance in this list does not guarantee that a course will be offered again or that the prerequisites will not change.
