Requirements for the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering

Candidates for the M.S. in Chemical Engineering should plan their programs in accordance with the following list of requirements:

Guided Studies Option

Electives: 12 Credits

At least two electives (6 credits) must be chosen from approved CBE graduate courses, 6000-level and above, while the other two (6 credits) may be chosen from other graduate programs with the approval of the graduate advisor in chemical engineering.

Internship for Chemical Engineering M.S. Students

Students can register for an internship course (CP-GY 9911  , CP-GY 9921  , 1.5 credit each) to do an internship. Up to 3 credits of approved internships can be applied as non-CBE electives towards the M.S. degree. Students cannot do an internship for credit after they have completed degree requirements. For an internship to be approved for credit, the internship must provide industry and/or research experience relevant to the Chemical Engineering M.S. degree program. Students must secure a CBE faculty member’s commitment for advising an internship. All internships must be approved by the faculty advisor. An internship supervisor (that is a person supervising a student’s work at the internship site) should submit a midterm and a final term evaluation report to the faculty advisor. The student must submit a project report to the faculty advisor upon completion of the internship for evaluation and grading. International students willing to do an internship should consult with OGS to ensure compliance with immigration regulations; this most often involves getting approval for Curricular Practical Training (CPT).

Total: 30 Credits


To meet graduation requirements, students must have an overall B average in all courses (excluding M.S. Thesis or Guided Study Project) and must not obtain more than two grades of C in required subjects.
