Chemical engineering is part of a rapidly expanding field that requires interdisciplinary engineers educated in both the molecular and medical sciences. For every discovery made in the health and industrial sectors, a chemical engineer finds a way to develop and implement it on a large scale.

The MS in Chemical Engineering program at the School of Engineering prepares you to fulfill this unique role. Our curriculum introduces you to advanced design methods and provides an in-depth look at the research and development process. Our curriculum offers an advanced course of study to refine your research skills, and we teach you the problem-solving skills to surmount any problem along the way.

As a member of the program, you will have the opportunity to work closely with our leading research faculty. The School of Engineering research areas include biopolymers at interfaces, bio-sensors, dynamics of complex fluids, nanotechnology and nanomaterials, process-systems engineering, protein engineering, and biomolecular diagnostics.

In the coming years, we expect to see a significant increase in the demand for capable chemical engineers. Our graduates will be able to explore a number of exciting fields — from chemical manufacturing, energy production, and health care to biotechnology, nanotechnology, and environmental and consumer safety.
