ChBE Graduate Programs
Candidates are required to take a total of 32 credit hours, 12 credits of which must be for the chemical engineering core courses listed below, and six to eight credit hours must be in research and thesis work.
CHE 525 Chemical Reaction Engineering
CHE 535 Applications of Mathematics to Engineering
CHE 551 Advanced Transport Phenomena
CHE 553 Advanced Thermodynamics
The student must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0/4.0 in the core areas. Aside from the core courses, coursework may be selected (with advisor approval) to satisfy the needs of the individual student or may be concentrated in any area of specialization available in the department, including:
Electrochemical Science and Engineering
Food Process Engineering
Particle Technology and Multiphase Flow
Polymer Science and Engineering
Process Design, Statistical Modeling and Control
Undergraduate courses may sometimes be used to fulfill graduate program requirements in order to overcome deficiencies or to broaden the candidate s background. The limit is 12 credit hours in courses numbered 400—499. 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.
