The Future of Energy
Prepare for your future working to reduce pollution and energy consumption in manufacturing, managing hazardous waste and more in a program that teaches the research methods and investigative procedures required for this field. Work alongside faculty members with diverse expertise and experience state-of-the-art facilities and laboratory equipment, including the atomic force microscope (AFM) system.
Most students who enter the graduate program in chemical engineering hold a bachelor of science in chemical engineering and have a solid background in chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics and the fundamentals of engineering.
The graduate program also includes provisions for study, leading to a master’s degree in chemical engineering, for students who have a bachelor’s degree in a related field, such as chemistry, physics, or another engineering discipline. These students register as undergraduates until they meet the prerequisites to the courses required in the master’s program.
Our master of science (M.S.) in Chemical Engineering requires 10 credits of directed thesis study and 20 credits of course work. It typically takes two to three semesters to complete the requirements for a M.S. or M.Engr. degree.
