  1. The latest version of the curriculum sheet supersedes any curriculum and pre-/corequisite information in the Undergraduate Bulletin or online.
  2. “C” Passing Grade Requirement: Courses highlighted in yellow require a minimum passing grade of “C”.
  3. Skills tests: Certain students may be required to pass CUNY Assessment Tests in one or more subjects within 1 or 2 years of admission.
  4. Liberal Arts electives: ChE students must take six approved courses (18 credits) of which at least two (6 credits) must be at the 20000 level or higher. A list of approved courses is posted on the School of Engineering web site at ccny.cuny.edu/engineering/gen-ed and can be viewed at the Office of Undergraduate Affairs (ST-209) or the Office of Student Programs (ST-2M7).
    • Each course falls into one or more liberal arts clusters, specified in the list. The six courses must collectively occupy at least three clusters. The four clusters are: (f) Professional and Ethical Responsibilities, (g) Communication, (h) Global and Societal Context, and (j) Contemporary Issues.
    • Most students must also satisfy Pathways liberal arts requirements. See ccny.cuny.edu/engineering/pathways .
  5. Technical Elective Requirements: Five (5) technical electives. Technical electives must include at least 6 credits of engineering courses (CHE, ENGR, or another branch of engineering). Any Math, Science, or Engineering course that is level 30000 or higher will be accepted as a technical elective. In addition, ENGR 27600 (Engineering Economics) and SCI 28000 (Bioinformatics & Biomolecular Systems) will be accepted.
  6. Other Graduation Requirements: Apply for graduation during registration for the last semester. Minimum GPA of 2.00. Minimum QPA of zero. Residency Requirement: 33 credits of 30000-level or higher Chemical Engineering courses taken at CCNY (a maximum of 6 credits may be in non-ChE Technical Elective courses).
  7. New Transfer Students: Please be sure to see your general advisor each semester. For more information contact the Office of Undergraduate Affairs (ST-209, 212-650-8020)
  8. Program Changes: Substitution of other courses for required courses must be approved by the Chair of the Chemical Engineering Department (ST-322), and the Associate Dean of the Office of Undergraduate Affairs (ST-209).

Total Credits: 130.
