An Alternative Route to Chemical Engineering for Minority and Other Students.
Cussler, E. L.
The following three alternative ways in which minority group chemistry majors may be trained as chemical engineers are examined in this paper: (l) they are admitted as engineers and take the same courses as engineering students at the graduate level; (2) undergraduate courses are taken as part of the transition from chemistry to chemical engineering; and (3) special undergraduate engineering curriculum courses are taken during the summer prior to entry into the graduate program. The disadvantages of the first two approaches are outlined. The characteristics of the successful accelerated summer course program at Carnegie-Mellon University are discussed. (MC)
