Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Graduate Studies in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Birtwistle with two graduate students.

Masters of Science

The master's degree in chemical engineering prepares students to apply science and engineering principles to complex problems associated with the chemical, biomolecular and associated industries. Students develop an advanced understanding of science and engineering principles. A thesis and non-thesis option are available.

M.S. Program

Doctor of Philosophy

We have strong research programs in advanced materials, biotechnology, energy, and chemical and biochemical processing. Most entering the Ph.D. program have a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering, but students with degrees in chemistry, physics, or related branches of science and engineering are encouraged to apply.

B.S./M.S. Combined Program

Undergraduates may begin an M.S. degree program while completing their B.S. Students interested in the combined degree should follow the standard Chemical Engineering Curriculum for their B.S. degree. The undergraduate curriculum allows up to nine credits of mutually acceptable graduate course credits to satisfy the requirements of both degrees.
