About

The Chemical Engineering program at Louisiana State University pairs the principals of chemistry, physics, and biology with the design skills of an engineer. As a chemical engineer, you will be able to contribute to society through research, process or product development, pollution control, energy studies, and so much more.

Overview

Concentrations Available in the Chemical Engineering program at Louisiana State University:

  • Biomolecular: The biomolecular concentration provides insight into the roles chemical engineers play in engineering biological systems. Optimization of industrial biological processes involve many of the same techniques as traditional chemical processes, such as separations, product purification, and reactor design. In this concentration, you can strengthen your biology background by taking advanced courses in biological engineering and biology. Additionally, you will take biomolecular courses in chemical engineering in which you will learn about kinetics of bioreactors, DNA manipulation, protein engineering for enhanced industrial utility, and many other topics.
  • Environmental: The environmental concentration provides an understanding of the relationships between nature and chemicals, including their feedstocks, processing, and ultimate fate in the environment. Courses in this concentration focus on sustainability in the chemical and process industries, transport of chemicals in the environment (including air, water, and soils), atmospheric reactions, and the balance between industry and environment in large and small systems.  
  • Materials: The materials concentration provides an understanding of materials processing and properties as they relate to chemical engineering. For example, courses in heterogeneous catalysis consider how catalyst performance is associated with material properties at the atomic level. Likewise, the program provides insights into how the properties of materials are determined by chemical processing. For example, it is important to understand how precursor materials affect the properties of various products, plastics, or other advanced materials, such as alloys, ceramics, and semiconductors. Other courses include topics related to metal reliability and corrosion as they relate to chemical engineering.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • $50 non-refundable application fee.
  • International students who have never attended a post-secondary education institution will apply as a freshman (first-year student), and must have the equivalent of a U.S. high school diploma with an academic average equivalent to a “B” (3.0 or better on the U.S. 4-point grading system).
  • The “academic average” is determined by averaging the grades of secondary school academic courses, excluding nonacademic courses such as physical education, vocational/technical courses, religion, art, music, etc.
  • Students must submit complete official records for the secondary level of education and are strongly encouraged to submit ACT or SAT scores.
