A minimum of 30 graduate credits must be earned for the M.S. degree. A minimum of 15 credits of this must be coursework, including 12 credits of ChE courses, including ChE 698(X) and at least two courses chosen from ChE 545, 554, 583, and 587. In addition to the ChE courses, a minimum of 3 credits of course work must be taken outside of the department, including GR ST 565. In addition to satisfying the normal graduate degree requirements, students without an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering must demonstrate proficiency in the major undergraduate subjects of chemical engineering: material and energy balances, heat and mass transfer, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and chemical reaction engineering. This is usually accomplished by completion of at least three undergraduate courses, as determined by the Director of Graduate Education, during an advising meeting held during graduate student orientation. Completion of the equivalent of Math 267, and Chemistry 331 and 332 also is required. Area(s) of Emphasis includes Biochemical Engineering, Bioinformatics, Biomedical Engineering, Biorenewables, Polymeric Materials, Nanotechnology, Tissue and Metabolic Engineering, Interfacial Chemistry and Catalysis, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Electrochemical Engineering, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Statistical Process Control.
