Master of Science in Chemical Engineering
The objective of this degree program is to enable the student to build a strong foundation in multiple areas of chemical engineering and to specialize in one area via research and thesis. Candidates are required to take a total of 32 credit hours: 12 credit hours of which must be for the chemical engineering core courses, and 6-8 credit hours must be in research and thesis work. Elective courses are to be determined in consultation with an academic adviser.

A minimum grade point average of 3.0/4.0 is required for core courses. Aside from the core courses, coursework may be selected (with adviser approval) to satisfy the needs of the individual student and may be aligned with the research areas listed in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering section of this bulletin.
A thesis may be completed outside the department only by special arrangement with the department chair. The successful M.S. degree candidate will complete a thesis based on research as well as an oral defense of the thesis, under the direction of the thesis examining committee.
