Chemistry Collaborative Programs in Engineering, B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 60 months
Radford, VA, United States
The Department of Chemistry at Radford University and the College of Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) offer a joint program in chemistry and chemical engineering. 


This is a dual degree program in which the student will receive a B.S. in chemistry from Radford University and a B.S. in engineering from Virginia Tech. The approximate time required for a student to complete these programs is five years. During the first three years, the student completes the major requirements in chemistry, as well as most or all of the Core Curriculum requirements at Radford. Some introductory engineering courses should also be completed while the student is at Radford; some of these may be taken during the summer. The student then transfers to Virginia Tech and, in two additional years, completes the requirements for a degree in engineering. Participants in this program who have a grade point average of 3.0 or above are guaranteed admission to the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech. All degree requirements for both Radford University and Virginia Tech should be satisfied by the end of the fifth year.

Programme Structure

The student then receives a degree from each institution. The student should be prepared to take general chemistry (CHEM 101:CHEM 102) and calculus (MATH 151:MATH 152) during the first year. In the second year, organic chemistry (CHEM 301:CHEM 302), courses in analytical chemistry (CHEM 324, CHEM 424), the calculus-based physics sequence (PHYS 221:PHYS 222), and additional calculus courses (MATH 251:MATH 252) should be completed. In the third year, the student takes physical chemistry (CHEM 401:CHEM 402), additional mathematics courses, and two engineering courses (5 semester hours of credit) at Virginia Tech. Courses in Core Curriculum during these three years will be chosen in consultation with a faculty advisor. After transferring to Virginia Tech, the student will complete any remaining Core Curriculum requirements and the requirements for the chemical engineering degree.
