The Master of Science program aims to teach students how to carry out research, critize the findings and report the results in a specific field. In addition to leading to the M.S. degree, this program provides a basis for continued study leading to the Ph.D. degree. The program consists of a set of graduate courses, independent research, and defense of a thesis based on this research.
The program requires 21 hours of graduate course work. Students take three courses (9 units) from the core graduate chemical engineering courses, plus an additional 12 credits from department-approved graduate or advanced undergraduate courses in the basic or applied sciences and engineering. Each student selects a major professor to assist him or her in planning a program of course work and research. The low student-faculty ratio in the department permits a very close interaction between students and faculty.
