* During the freshman and sophomore years, students should choose physical
education classes from each of the following areas: P.E. 103, 184; group
games, i unit; physical fitness, i unit.
**Math. 305 should be taken concurrently with Education 300.

See the Education section of this catalog for additional information.

Students having an interest in secondary education should register for the
appropriate courses in areas of Career Orientation other than education. For
example, a person wishing to teach biological science in the secondary schools
should register in courses under biological science, premedicine, predentistry,
and preforestry. Similarly, if a person wishes to teach industrial arts, he should
register in industrial and technical education courses. As soon as a student has
chosen his teaching major, he should transfer to the appropriate college to
receive advisement and continue his studies toward a Bachelor of Science or
Bachelor of Arts degree and teacher certification.

Family Living

The two-year program in family living is designed for students who are undecided
about a major and who wish to explore possibilities in the College of Family
Living. Courses listed below in clcything and textiles, child development and
family relationships, environmental design, family economics and home manage-
ment, food science and nutrition, and home economics education will provide
a foundation in any one of these fields for the bachelor's degree. Other courses
listed below will contribute substantially toward filling general education require-

Professors: Barker, Christensen, Coates, Hanks, Horton, Pope, Smoot (Chair-
man, 128 FELB).
Associate Professors: Clark, Glassett, Rogers.
Part-Time Faculty: Wilson.

The Department of Chemical Engineering Science offers professional training
leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of
Philosophy. The curriculimi is accredited by the Engineers' Council for Profes-
sional Development and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

The professional chemical engineer finds employment in a wide range of
fields from environmental control to rocket propellant manufacture. His princi-
pal activity is to change raw materials into useful and valuable products by
applying a basic knowledge of chemistry, physics, mathematics, and economics.
Using this knowledge he conducts research on processes, markets products, and
designs, builds, operates, and manages complex manufacturing plants.

All chemical engineering students take basic courses in chemistry, mathematics,
physics, and chemical engineering. The course of study is designed to sdlow
the student to choose from 14 to 19 semester hours in one of several options.
The courses recommended for each option are listed below. These options are
designed to give the student increased training in a specific field of interest.
Successful completion of these courses will qualify the graduate for work in any
of the many fields that employ chemical engineers, such as atomic energy, pe-
troleum, air and water pollution, space technology, etc.

Entrance Requirements

Entrance requirements are similar for all branches of engineering at BYU and
are specified in detail in the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences section
of this catalog.

Transfer Students

Provisions have been made so that a qualified student transferring from a
junior college or at the end of his second year from other universities, col-
leges, or departments can complete the B.S. degree requirements in two years.
The qualifications and suggested course sequence are listed below. Prospective
transfer students should contact the department at the earliest date possible so
that any variations can be accommodated with minimum loss of time to the stu-

Grade Requirements

In order to continue in the Chemical Engineering Science Department, a student
must maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 2.00 or higher in each of
the following subjects: mathematics, chemistry, and physics. Students not main-
taining this average will be placed on probationary status in the department.


In order to graduate, a student must maintain an overall average of at least
2.00. No more than three hours of D credit in major department classes will
be counted toward graduation.

Course Requirements

Maximum advantage should be taken of the four hours of religion credit given
for attending devotional assemblies for a period of four years.

Engineering students may register for 18 hours per semester exclusive of physi-
cal education and forum and devotional assemblies without obtaining special per-

The courses required for the B.S. degree in chemical engineering are summa-
rized below. These courses may be taken in a four-year program as outlined, or
they may be completed in a three-year period by attending one additional Spring
or Summer term each year. Contact the Chemical Engineering Department for
suggested course sequences for the three-year program.

*Option electives are to be selected from one (only) of the options listed
below. Other options desired by the student require advance approval by
adviser and department.
**Transfer students should have completed calculus, differential equations, inor-
ganic and organic chemistry, and physics as well as all general education
requirements shown in the freshman and sophomore years. Transferring
students should take Chem. Eng. 101 on a self-study basis. The senior re-
ligion class will be required in the Fall Semester of that year. An additional
3 hours of option electives will be required in the senior year if suitable
transfer classes are not available.
***It is recommended that these courses be taken by special examination.


tMath. Ill and Civ. Eng. 101 are presumed to be prerequisites for the fresh-
man year. A student may be exempted from these classes if he has com-
pleted an equivalent high school course and passes a placement exam given
prior to registration.

JThe general education requirement in biological sciences is 4 semester hours
for chemical engineering science majors.

The student may select one of the following options to fit his individual
needs and interests. All of the option elective courses shown in the recom-
mended sequence of courses outlined above must be taken from one option

cation requirements. Any variation within the option selected must be ap-
proved by the student's adviser and the department.
