The Program
The Department

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering offers two undergraduate degree programs:
  • Bachelors of Science in Chemical Engineering
  • Bachelor of Science in Biological Engineering
Both of these degree programs integrate chemistry, biochemistry, physics, and mathematics along with oral and written communications courses, and CORE courses in the humanities and social sciences. The bioengineering program adds a significant exposure to biological science in addition to the chemistry core. The chemical engineering and bioengineering programs are fundamentally similar in that both are focused on the transformation of molecules, but the methods and equipment used for biotransformation and separation are quite different from those used for chemical transformations. The curricula accommodate the unique characteristics of each discipline. Each ChBE student participates in a capstone senior design team project that provides an opportunity to pull together the knowledge and skills learned in earlier courses to solve a real world problem.
The College

The Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering comprises five academic departments (Chemical & Biological Engineering, Civil Engineering, Gianforte School of Computing, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Mechanical & Industrial Engineering and is home to the following research centers: Center for Biofilm Engineering (CBE), Western Transportation Institute (WTI), Montana Microfabrication Facility (MMF) and the Subzero Science and Engineering Research Facility; the Montana Manufacturing Extension Center (MMEC); and the Army and Air Force ROTC Units. The College enrolls approximately 4,000 students with more than 200 studying in graduate degree programs. Doctoral degree programs include a Ph.D. in Computer Science and a Ph.D. in Engineering with options in the fields of Applied Mechanics, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

The College is excited that Asbjornson Hall opened in 2019. This innovative facility is transforming education and scholarly activity at MSU.
