School of Green Chemistry and Engineering

Undergraduate Program


The University of Toledo School of Green Chemistry and Engineering (SGCE) currently offers through our partner departments an undergraduate Minor in Green Chemistry and Engineering (MGCE) and several courses in green chemistry, green engineering and environmental chemistry.

  • The MGCE is designed for students who want to expand the breadth of their undergraduate majors by incorporating the principles of green chemistry and green engineering into their B.A. or B.S. degrees in chemistry, chemical engineering, environmental science or a related area.

  • The MGCE addresses a need for scientists and engineers broadly trained in chemistry, environmental chemistry, chemical engineering, toxicology, life-cycle assessment, chemical alternatives assessment and environmental regulations and policy.

A minimum of 21 hours of course work and a minimum GPA of 2.0 in those courses are required for the minor. No courses in the minor may be taken P/NC. Students completing the MGCE must be sure that at least 12 credit hours of the minor requirements are unique to the MGCE, and are not being used to satisfy requirements in the major or another minor. (Ex: CHEM 3810 can be used to complete a requirement for the MGCE or the minor in renewable energy, but not both.)

Representative examples of how a student might fulfill the requirements for the MGCE are provided below. Many options are possible. Students are encouraged to tailor the minor to their personal interests through selection of electives as reference above in the UToledo Course Catalog.
