Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers are multi-disciplinarians who apply principles of chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering to solve a range of practical real-life problems, from the large-scale production of pharmaceuticals to the discovery and development of novel pharmaceuticals. Some areas of chemical engineering, such as drug design will be investigated through activities, focusing on data analysis, followed by iteration and redesign.

The goals of this class are to foster reasoning and analytical skills in the context of biology and organic chemistry. Students will gather qualitative or quantitative data from experimental situations, understand and accurately represent data when needed, and use the data to evaluate predictions, support structure determination, and propose plans of action.

Scheduled Class Time*

04:00 PM - 07:00 PM (PDT)

*The course will meet for two hours daily (Monday–Friday) for a live class during this window of time. The exact time will be set closer to the program start. In addition to the live meeting times, students will engage in out-of-class learning assignments such as assigned readings, group work, pre-recorded online lectures, and more.


Mathematics including geometry and algebra. Experience in a chemistry course or exposure in an elective or online class will be helpful.
