    Program: Master of Science in Chemical Engineering

    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.

    Core Courses
    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:

    Biological Engineering
    Electrochemical Science and Engineering
    Energy/Environment/Economics (E3)
    Environmental Engineering
    Food Process Engineering
    Particle Technology and Multiphase Flow
    Pharmaceutical Engineering
    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.
