Bachelor of Science, Dual Degree with Chemical Engineering

B.S. Plan C

 

Chemical Engineering Option

 

The B.S. in Chemistry degree offers greater concentration in chemistry than the B.A. degree option and is recommended for those students planning careers in chemical industry or engineering or for those who plan to pursue graduate study.  A senior research thesis and seminar is required and designed to introduce students to modern advanced techniques and approaches to chemical research in conjunction with a faculty advisor.

 

In this dual degree option, a student may, in approximately five academic years, obtain a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry degree from West Georgia and a Chemical Engineering degree from an engineering school.  The B.S. in Chemistry will be awarded by West Georgia after completion of 90 semester credit hours and transfer of 30 semester credit hours of chemical engineering courses from an engineering school.  To obtain a B.S. in Chemistry degree from West Georgia, the student will have to complete courses in the core curriculum and lower and upper division chemistry classes.  To obtain the engineering degree, the student will normally earn 60 or more hours of undergraduate credit required in the junior and senior years of study in chemical engineering.  Students interested in engineering should contact Dr. Dutt soon after enrolling in the program to plan their schedules and to learn of special requirements.  Students planning to attend Georgia Institute of Technology must have at least the minimum grade point average required of transferees.  Students who fail to transfer will have to complete research and additional chemistry requirements of the B.S. in Chemistry curriculum at West Georgia in their final year.

 

To be admitted to the Regent's Engineering Transfer Program (RETP), the student must be a resident of Georgia, have a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher, and a combined SAT score of 1090 or higher (560 Math, 530 Verbal).  Students not meeting these requirements may be admitted to the RETP program at a later time based on their academic performance at West Georgia.

 

Upon completion of this degree program the student will have the ability to:

  1. Understand the basic concepts of physical, organic, analytical instrumental chemistry, and chemical engineering.

  2. Apply mathematical and computer techniques to solve numerical problems in chemistry and chemical engineering.

  3. Analyze and interpret experiments conducted in chemistry and chemical engineering.

  4. Communicate effectively in both oral and written presentations.
