Undergraduate Chemical Engineering Program

Villanova University Chemical Engineering undergraduates have hands-on experiences.

The College of Engineering offers a full-time academic program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering degree in 4 years. A student may also able to obtain a Bachelor and Master of Science in Chemical Engineering in 5 years.

At Villanova University, the Department of Chemical Engineering equips undergraduates to synthesize the principles of mathematics, chemistry, physics and engineering sciences to creatively solve technical, commercial and social problems arising in industries that manufacture products by chemical reactions. These solutions must respond to economic constraints as well as social, ethical, environmental and safety implications.

Technical electives within the department allow you to tailor the program and focus on specific disciplines, including:

  • Bioengineering
  • Nano and Advanced Materials
  • Energy and Sustainability
  • Advanced Chemical Engineering

Where Are They Now?

2018 graduates from Villanova’s Chemical Engineering program are working in a number of fields and continuing their education in specialty programs. Here is just a sampling:
