Paper Engineering Minor

For information, contact the Department of Chemical, Paper and Biomedical Engineering, 64 Engineering Building , 513-529-0760.

The minor introduces the science and engineering of papermaking. The educational experience will prepare the student for a career as a project/process engineer in the paper and allied industries.

A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 is required for all courses in the minor. A minimum of twenty-five semester hours beyond the prerequisite courses are required. None of these courses may be taken on a credit/no credit basis.

Students whose major is Mechanical Engineering are advised to select MME 448/MME 449; however, they must work on a paper engineering related project, supervised by a faculty member in CPB. In addition, students must have completed and participated in all the assessment elements required by MME 448/MME 449. Students must seek approval from their advisor in CPB and MME prior to registering for the course.

Note: Additional prerequisites may be required for specific courses in the minor. Please consult an advisor in the CPB department.
