Double Majors and Minors-Chemical Engineering Advising - Carnegie Mellon University

Popular Double Majors and Minor Information

Double Major in Biomedical Engineering (BME)

Students may pursue a double major in Chemical Engineering and BME.  Specific course choices should be discussed with a faculty advisor and a BME advisor.

Double Major in Engineering and Public Policy (EPP)

Students may pursue a double major in Chemical Engineering and EPP.  This double major is very flexible, built around electives, social analysis, probability and statistics courses, and projects.  Specific course choices should be discussed with a faculty advisor and an EPP advisor.

Minor in Computer Science

Students may double-count a maximum of 3 courses for the CS minor toward their ChemE major.  Meet with the Program Coordinator in the CS Undergraduate Office to determine double-counting restrictions specific to your own situation.

Minor in Colloids, Polymers, and Surfaces (CPS)

Historically, the CPS coursework sequence has had a long-standing popularity among Chemical Engineering students.  Chemical Engineering students may use four of their electives to obtain the CPS minor.  This is a sequence of closely related courses that explores the science and engineering of polymeric materials, particulates, micro-structured fluids, and interfacially engineered materials.  Speak with your faculty advisor or the Director of CPS for more information.
