Master of Engineering
in Chemical Engineering


Chemical engineering involves molecular transformations—chemical, physical, and biological—from the submolecular to the macroscopic, and the analysis, synthesis, and operation of such systems. Graduate study provides both rigorous training in the fundamental core discipline of chemical engineering and the opportunity to focus on specific division. In addition to completing four core subject requirements in thermodynamics, reaction engineering, mathematics, and transportation phenomena, students further select a research lab for specialization: chemical engineering fundamentals, catalysis and reaction engineering, control and systems engineering, biochemical engineering, particle technology, polymer engineering, and environmental chemical engineering.


To qualify for acceptance to the M.Eng. program, a minimum grade point average of student is not specified, however the minimum grade point of admitted students in 2004 is 2.75 (A = 4.0). An outstanding student with degree in other branches of engineering or science may apply for admission in our Master program but are required to take additional bachelor level fundamental chemical engineering courses.
