Engineering-Chemical Engineering (AS)
Associate of Science Transfer
About This Degree
Estimated Program Length
Thanks to chemists and chemical engineers, we now enjoy luxuries our parents did not—luxuries such as no-iron fabrics and non-stick fry pans. These professionals help produce specific products that make our world a better place in which to live. They also design equipment and manufacturing plants or specialize in a particular field such as pollution control, food processing engineering, or pharmaceutical engineering.
The focus in all engineering tracks is developing sound problem-solving techniques. The laboratory is your practice ground as you learn the nature of chemical reactions and then translate that to mass transport—reactions occurring on a much larger scale, as in chemical plants.
The VU Advantage
Vincennes University offers the first two years of a Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural, biomedical, food process, chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. All programs are designed to transfer to Purdue University and require high-level mathematics proficiency. Advantages to beginning your studies at VU include:
- Hands-on experience, the nurturing of fundamental skills to prepare you for advanced study.
- The use of laboratory equipment normally reserved for students at the junior or senior level.
- Lab sections that are normally taught by the same person who teach the lecture sections, ensuring consistent instruction and encouraging relationship building with professors.
- The latest in industry software and computer-aided design systems.
