BSChE in Chemical Engineering with Emphasis in Biochemical
Degree Program Description
The curriculum provides a well-rounded general and rigorous technical education in order to hone an appreciation of the relationship between technology and society. The technical curriculum focuses on the basic sciences, as well as Chemical Engineering theory and practice. Throughout the curriculum, problem solving, design, critical thinking and teamwork skills are built by integrating team-based design projects, laboratories, and reports. Our graduates work in traditional chemical engineering areas such as the petroleum and chemical industries, as well as microelectronics, pharmaceuticals, materials, polymers, environmental protection, consumer products and engineering consulting. Our graduates also pursue careers in business management or government as well as advanced studies in medicine, law, business, basic sciences and other engineering disciplines.

The degree audit is an automated report reflecting a student’s academic progress toward the completion of a degree. Degree Audits are not available for all programs; however, please consult with the appropriate college or school for audit information.
MU students can request a degree audit by logging in to myDegreePlanner. Students may also access myDegreePlanner via myZou, in the Student Center, by clicking on the Request Degree Audit link. The audit automatically pulls in the student’s MU course work, transfer courses and courses in progress. This is available to current students, admitted students, and those who last attended less than three terms ago.
Past MU students can request a degree audit by contacting the Academic Advising Unit of the division in which they were last enrolled at MU. For contact information, go to http://advising.missouri.edu/contact/.
Prospective students, can access a preliminary MU degree audit via http://www.transfer.org. Information on the college credits already earned will have to be manually entered before it can be evaluated against current degree requirements.
For additional details on degree audits, go to http://registrar.missouri.edu/degree-audits/index.php.
