Chemical Engineering, Accelerated Master’s

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: All Programs

Return to the Russell School of Chemical Engineering 

The accelerated master’s degree program allows students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering (B.S.Ch.E.)  degree and a Master of Engineering (M.E.) degree in chemical engineering in five years. Students complete the regular course work for the bachelor’s degree with the exception that 5000-level courses are taken for the Advanced Science Elective and the Advanced Engineering Elective. Students may apply for the program when they have completed between 60 and 96 hours toward the bachelor’s degree, including CHE 3084 Mass Transfer  and its prerequisites, with a G.P.A. of at least 3.5.

Interested students should contact the Graduate Program Advisor for chemical engineering as early as possible and before taking any elective courses. Degree requirements for the accelerated master’s program are the same as for the usual M.E. degree, with the two 5000-level courses taken as undergraduate electives counting toward the master’s degree as well as the bachelor’s degree. Students may pass the master’s comprehensive exam during the final semester of the combined program instead of completing the CHE 7913 Master’s Project.
