Department of Chemical Engineering

Welcome to the Department of Chemical Engineering (CHEG) at Prairie View A&M University.  We offer two choices of degree programs for undergraduate students: the Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering (B.S.Ch.E), and the B.S.Ch.E. with a Concentration in Bioengineering. For graduate students, we offer the Master of Science in Engineering with a Concentration in Chemical Engineering.

The Department of Chemical Engineering at Prairie View A&M University is one of only six fully accredited Chemical Engineering programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the country.  Our graduates are employed world-wide and our faculty is engaged in research ranging from fundamental to applied technology.

Our faculty members are engaged in a wide array of research projects ranging from reservoir transport modeling and simulation, process safety, pollution and prevention, technology assessment, etc. to very fundamental research in nanotechnology, nuclear radiation,  life sciences, membrane separation, bioprocess, molecular simulation and engineering education- to name a few. 

We are located on the second floor of the C. L. Wilson Building with our laboratories housed in the Gilchrist Building.


The Chemical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET
