The following links will take you to information about our curriculum and the concentrations that you can enroll in.
Note: Effective for graduates in May 2015, CHE 4633 Chemical Process Safety will be required for all concentrations. Updated curriculum sheets will be posted during the fall 2012 semester. This course will be offered every spring effective Spring 2013.
- Chemical Engineering Practice Concentration
- Chemical Engineering Research & Development Concentration
- Biomolecular Engineering Concentration
Please remember that the R&D concentration is recommended for those planning to pursue a graduate engineering degree. The biomolecular concentration is for students in pre-med or similar pre-professional tracks. The Chemical Engineering Practice is our “traditional” curriculum.
Also note that ALL three concentrations require all core chemical engineering courses and will allow you to choose a career path in industry (or otherwise). This is important to recognize for the situations where you might begin your study toward a particular career path and choose at the end to change to something else. These concentrations were designed to facilitate one direction or another – not to limit career choice.

- Instructions: Once the file has been downloaded, click on the CHEMCAD 6.5 icon and when the program opens, select the Sys Auth (System Authorization) Tab. Locate the System Key and email that combination of letters and numbers to Sandra Shumaker at Sandra@che.msstate.edu. She will then contact Chemstations by email for your program authorization and email it back to you. It is best if you send Sandra your system key early in the day, so that Chemstations has time to respond. Please do not email the system key late in the afternoon (2pm or later) and expect a response from Chemstations the same day.
