Unique Degree Opportunity

 

Are you interested in using chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics to solve engineering problems related to production, transformation, and utilization of chemicals, materials and energy?

Take advantage of the high demand for Chemical Engineers by pursuing a Chemical Engineering degree from UTSA!

Chemical engineers address a broad range of issues that allow them to make a difference in their communities. Graduates of chemical engineering programs are highly sought-after in a wide variety of industries:

  • Oil and gas
  • Biotechnology and pharmaceuticals
  • Environmental and materials
  • Manufacturing industrial goods
  • Refining and petrochemical industries

Optional Specializations

The UTSA Chemical Engineering program will provide high quality education and training in chemical engineering through rigorous course and state of- the-art lab works.

Additionally, students will also develop a degree of depth in one of the four specialized areas of study:

  • Petroleum and Energy Systems - the sector with burgeoning industry demand for well-trained individuals in the oil and gas as well as in sustainable energy solutions
  • Materials Engineering - the enabling technical field for microelectronics, energy conversion, and process controls
  • Bioengineering - the emerging area that interfaces biology, math and sciences with engineering to improve bio-systems used in energy, environment and health
  • Environmental Engineering - the strategic growth area finding resources and environmental solutions for manufactures and consumers

Students can choose their electives in one of the four focus areas. Please see charts for approved electives.
