Degree Requirements

Candidates must fulfill the requirements of the College of Graduate Studies and of the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering. See the College of Graduate Studies section for the general requirements applicable to each degree.

Master of Science. Majors are available in chemical engineering, materials science and engineering, and metallurgical engineering. General M.S. requirements apply. All students entering the chemical engineering program must complete ChE 515ChE 529, and ChE 541.

Master of Engineering. General M.Engr. requirements apply.

Doctor of Philosophy. Majors are available in chemical engineering and materials science and engineering While most students entering the graduate program possessing only the bachelor's degree will first earn the M.S., it is possible to bypass the M.S. and work directly toward the Ph.D. Students electing this option will be expected to critically analyze a current research area as part of their degree requirements. This will constitute their Ph.D. qualifying examination. For others, the oral M.S. thesis examination serves as the Ph.D. qualifying examination. A written research proposal modeled after those submitted to such agencies as the National Science Foundation is required as part of the requirements for the Ph.D.
