Chemical Engineering M.S.

M.S. Admission Requirements

An applicant is expected to have completed a baccalaureate degree in chemical engineering. Students with good undergraduate records but with deficiencies in certain areas may be admitted on condition that they complete specified courses without credit to make up for their deficiencies. Applicants must submit current scores (within 5 years) from the general test of the GRE. International students are required to submit TOEFL test scores. IELTS scores are accepted on a case-by-case basis, and students must have a minimum score of 6.5.

M.S. Degree Requirements

A minimum of 30 credits, which must include Advanced Fluid Mechanics (CHE 913), Heat Transfer (CHE 915), Diffusive Mass Transfer (CHE 916), Advanced Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (CHE 923), and Advanced Chemical Engineering Kinetics (CHE 932), is required for the Master of Science in chemical engineering. These five core courses constitute 15 credits. The remaining 9 course credits can be made up of electives offered by the department or by the college. Students take electives after consulting with their advisor. A thesis is required, for which 6 credits will be allowed.
