Master of Science

To earn the M.S. degree in chemical engineering, you must complete 30 credit hours of graduate-level work. This could include either a masters project or master research thesis.

The 30 credit hours include four required core courses totaling 12 credit hours:

ChE 8010, Graduate Research Skills and Ethics
ChE 8030, Advanced Transport Phenomena II
ChE 8040, Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics
ChE 8050, Chemical Engineering Kinetics

You must also take 18 additional credit hours of technical elective courses, inclusive of either a masters project or a masters research thesis.

The normal time required to earn an M.S. degree in chemical engineering is three semesters and a summer. Presently, students who are admitted to the MS program do not receive financial aid.
