  • Course description

    The program consists of at least 30 credits of course work (10 courses), of which a maximum of six credits may be replaced by an independent study project. This project, if elected, will be guided by a member of the department faculty. The type of project (e.g., experimental research, process design, theoretical analysis, literature survey) will be based on the student's interests and the recommendations of the department's graduate committee. All topics for independent study are subject to review and approval by the department's graduate committee. The student must prepare a formal written report covering the independent study. Full-time students receiving financial aid will be required to carry out an independent study project for six credits and prepare a thesis.

    A minimum of 24 credits of the student's course work must be in chemical engineering. The courses selected must conform to the departmental guidelines and form a coordinated program.


    All of our graduate courses are taught at night (2 1/2 hours one night per week) so that working professionals can easily attend and participate in the program. Ten courses are required for the Master's degree in Chemical Engineering. Students admitted starting Fall 2009 will be required to complete a minimum of 7 courses numbered 8000 or higher.  Students admitted prior to Fall 2009 may also opt for this requirement, or may choose to complete the requirements in effect at their time of their admission, which required the completion of a minimum of six courses in chemical engineering fundamentals* and a maximum of four can be in the electives area**. Two courses may be outside the chemical engineering department with advisor approval. All courses are 3 credits.
