Chemical engineering is a discipline focused on conceiving and designing processes
to produce, transform and transport materials — beginning with experimentation in
the laboratory followed by implementation of the technology.
Why chemical engineering at OSU?
The mission of the School of Chemical Engineering at Oklahoma State University is
to develop human resources, professional knowledge, and the infrastructure through
which chemical engineering can contribute to human welfare. We expect to maintain
national recognition for our contributions. Traditional careers are in the chemical,
energy and oil industries, with increasing opportunities in biotechnology and pharmaceuticals.
Professions in, but not limited to, the energy, manufacturing or medical fields with
the following possible job titles:
Research & Development Engineer
Other: Law, Medicine, Venture Capitalism
92%FE EXAM PASS RATE FOR OSU CHEMICAL ENGINEERING STUDENTS
The national average pass rate for the FE exam has been 85% since 1995.
OSU’s award winning undergraduate chemical engineering program with ChE students consistently
out-performs those from other programs across the nation as evidenced by above average
Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam results and national competitions.
OSU chemical engineering students have won more AIChE National Student Design Team
Competitions than any other school.
OSU chemical engineering students consistently participate in the AIChE ChemE-Car
competition with an OSU team qualifying for the national competition every year but
once since 2003.
First-Class Faculty and Staff
All undergraduate chemical engineering courses are taught by award winning faculty
with extensive industrial experience.
No university has received more safety awards from the American Institute of Chemical
Engineers (AIChE) Safety and Health Division than OSU for the AIChE National Student
Students benefit from a nationally accredited curriculum that balances theory and
hands-on application experiences in the state-of-art ENDEAVOR undergraduate lab.
State-of-the-art Unit Operations Laboratory provides more hands-on experience than
most universities. Students chose 10 apparatuses to work on out of 20 available options,
and gain experience in completing written reports and oral presentations modeled after
Medical schools readily accept our chemical engineering pre-medical graduates.
