All graduate chemical engineering students (Master’s degree and Ph.D.) are required to take the following core courses:
- CHME 7320 Chemical Engineering Mathematics (4 SH)
- CHME 7330 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (4 SH)
- CHME 7340 Chemical Engineering Kinetics (4 SH)
- CHME 7350 Transport Phenomena (4 SH)
Additional Master’s Degree Requirements:
For students pursuing a Master of Science degree with Thesis, an additional 8 semester hours (SH) of coursework beyond the core is required, to be selected from elective course offerings, as well as 6 semester hours of Thesis. The total minimum requirement for the Master of Science with Thesis is 30 SH.
For students pursuing a non-thesis Master of Science degree, an additional 18 semester hours of coursework beyond the core is required, to be selected from elective course offerings.
For both Master’s level degrees, coursework outside of the department curriculum may be applied to the degree requirements by petitioning the department’s graduate committee.
Additional Doctoral Degree Requirements:
A minimum of 30 semester hours of academic course work beyond the core courses is required for the doctoral degree, to be selected from elective course offerings. After successful completion of the doctoral qualifying exam, doctoral students must also register for:
- CHME 9990 Thesis (Ph.D. Degree)
- CHME 9996 Ph.D. Continuation
until the completion and defense of their thesis.
Elective courses are regularly revised and updated, so please contact the department directly for the most up-to-date listing of electives.
After successful completion of the requirements for Doctoral candidacy, Doctoral students must also register for:
- CHME 7390 Graduate Seminar
for each semester that they are enrolled in the program.
