Program Details

Chemistry leading to the 3 + 2 Engineering Program [CEN] (Major)

This program in the Chemistry Department leads to the award of the bachelor of science in chemistry from SUNY Cortland and the bachelor of science in engineering from a cooperating institution.

Requirements for the chemistry major under the program include:
A. Study within the Major Area
Up to nine additional credit hours of engineering and chemistry courses taken at the cooperating engineering institution in the fourth and fifth years may be used toward meeting American Chemical Society certification requirements.

38 credit hours in chemistry including:
  • CHE 221 - General Chemistry I (4 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 222 - General Chemistry II (4 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 301 - Organic Chemistry I (4 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 302 - Organic Chemistry II (3 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 304 - Organic Chemistry Laboratory II (1 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 410 - Quantitative Analysis (3 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 431 - Physical Chemistry I (3 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 432 - Physical Chemistry II (3 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 434 - Engineering Thermodynamics (3 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 471 - Quantitative Measurements Laboratory (1 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 472 - Equilibrium Measurements Laboratory (1 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 473 - Thermodynamics and Kinetics Laboratory (1 cr. hr.)
  • CHE 474 - Spectroscopy Laboratory (1 cr. hr.)
Select from either:
  • CHE 451 - Introductory Biochemistry I (3 cr. hr.) or
  • CHE 540 - Advanced Inorganic Chemistry (3 cr. hr.)
B. Courses in Related Areas
Fifteen credit hours in mathematics including:
  • MAT 135 - Calculus I (4 cr. hr.)
  • MAT 236 - Calculus II (4 cr. hr.)
  • MAT 237 - Calculus III (4 cr. hr.)
  • MAT 430 - Differential Equations (3 cr. hr.)
Eight credit hours in physics, including:
  • PHY 201 - Principles of Physics I (4 cr. hr.)
  • PHY 202 - Principles of Physics II (4 cr. hr.)
C. Additional Courses
Six credit hours of English composition; 21 credit hours in General Education.

D. Courses at the cooperating engineering institution
For the additional degree in engineering, students will take courses at the cooperating engineering institution. A maximum 30 credit hours of courses approved by the cooperating institution will be transferred to Cortland to complete the 124 credit hours required to earn the degree.

Total Credit Hours Required for Graduation: 124
