Prior to admission to a degree-granting program, students must complete several General College Requirements (GCR; see http://www.engr.wisc.edu/current/undergrad.html). As part of the GCR, students must take courses in 5 categories (Communications, Physics, Chemistry, Introduction to Engineering, and Mathematics). While various courses can be selected in these categories, students who wish to be admitted to Chemical Engineering are strongly encouraged to take the specific courses listed in the table below.
These recommended courses present the preferred topics at a level suitable for Chemical Engineering students. Other alternatives that satisfy the General College Requirements will be accepted for admission into the Chemical Engineering degree program, but these choices may reduce the number of free electives available in the curriculum.
