1The listed co-requisite, CHEM.2290L or CHEM.2300L, Organic Chemistry Lab, is not required for Chemical Engineering majors. CHEM.2050L is the required lab.
2The listed co-requisite, CHEM.3460L, Physical Chemistry Lab, is not required for Chemical Engineering majors. CHEM.3470L is the required lab.
3All Technical Electives should be chosen from an approved list. Consult with your advisor.
4Calculus IA and Calculus IB instead of Calculus I will be required for students who do not pass the Calculus Readiness Test.
5Honors level courses may be taken instead.
6Chemical Engineering majors meet the Diversity and Cultural Awareness (DCA) ELO with an approved course outside the major requirements.

The university Core Curriculum requirements must be satisfied. Either Economics I (ECON.2010) or II (ECON.2020) must be used to satisfy one of the Social Sciences Perspective (SS) requirements. Either Intro. to Ethics (PHIL.2030) or Engineering and Ethics (PHIL.3340) must be used to satisfy one of the Arts & Humanities Perspective (AH) requirements. No more than two Breadth of Knowledge courses can be taken with the same prefix. The courses may be taken in any sequence. Refer to the Core Curriculum website for further details. You should meet with your faculty advisor to determine how you will meet the Core Curriculum requirements.

Current UMass Lowell students should use their Advisement Report in SIS. If you need assistance, please contact your advisor.
