Undergraduate Admissions

Chemical engineers develop an understanding of many scientific disciplines—and then use that understanding to enable progress. UIC's undergraduate program prepares you for the role you will someday hold to contribute to that progress: in industry, as an engineer for a government agency, as a university scholar, and more.

UIC chemical engineering is a small department, offering you the advantages of one-on-one advising, small class sizes in upper-level electives, and a strong sense of community. Our faculty members will know you by name. You will see your fellow chemical engineering students not only in class, but at department social events and hands-on activities, such as building our chemical-reaction-driven model car. We look forward to reading your application!

Admission to our undergraduate programs is handled through UIC’s main undergraduate admissions office, so we encourage you to visit its site if you have not already done so. If you are looking for information on how and when to apply, details on financial aid, and the online application, that is where you will find it.

In the meanwhile, we invite you explore this department website to learn more about studying chemical engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

ABET Accreditation
