Master of Science (M.S.) Degree in Chemical Engineering

The M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering normally involves a thesis and is usually completed within two years.

For students who enter the program with a recognized B.S. degree in chemical engineering, the M.S. degree requires 30 semester hours of graduate work which must include two seminars and six term courses in addition to the thesis.

Students holding a B.S. degree in science or other engineering disciplines are also eligible for admission to the M.S. program, although additional make-up courses may be required.

Required core courses for the M.S. degree are CHE 510, CHE 540, CHE 561 and CHE 580.
