The Master of Science in Chemical Engineering degree is usually awarded to a student who has an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering or strong evidence of undergraduate chemical engineering experience.
Major Research Areas:
The Chemical & Biomedical Engineering faculty research and development interest cover a broad range of areas in reacting systems, thermodynamics, transport phenomena, systems engineering and characterization, all fundamental as well as applied in biomedical, materials including microelectronic, and environmental domains. Strong collaboration with the College of Medicine, Center of Microelectronic Research, as well as, Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Industrial Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science and Engineering makes most majors in Chemical Engineering truly interdisciplinary.
The Department offers core courses in thermodynamics, transport phenomena, reacting systems, math, and process analysis and modeling. A rich variety of electives are available regularly within the department as well as the University. Chemical & Biomedical Engineering research facilities include modern laboratories for polymer synthesis and characterization, supercritical fluid technology, life sciences, process control, instrumentation, computer aided process design, and phase behavior.
Must meet University Admission and English Proficiency requirements as well as requirements for admission to the major, listed below.
- GRE required with preferred minimum scores of Verbal greater than 50% percentile, Quantitative greater than 75th percentile , and Analytical Writing of 3.0 or greater. Applicants who have successfully completed the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam offered by the Society of Professional Engineers will be exempted from the GRE requirement.
