Undergraduate Curriculum

THIS NOTE IS INTENDED FOR ALL INCOMING STUDENTS IN CHE FROM FALL 2016 FORWARD. CHE 1100 is a required course and must be taken prior to taking any other CHE courses. Beginning fall 2016, CHE 1100 will only be offered during the fall semester, meaning that if you plan to major in ChE, you should take CHE 1100 in the fall. It is a one credit hour course meant to give you a basic understanding of what chemical engineering is and what chemical engineers do. If you should have any questions, please contact the main office at 225-578-1426. To view the curriculum in flowchart format, please visit the College of Engineering's flowchart homepage. Click here for the 2016-17 ChE Flowchart. Course descriptions are available in the department section of the LSU General Catalog.
