The department has M.S. and Doctorate programs for students with a B.S. degree in chemical engineering or related fields. Candidates for the M.S. degree must complete a minimum of 36 credits including six credits for thesis work and two credits for graduate seminars. Also, students must pass an oral examination of their thesis by a committee organized by the department faculty.
The department offers graduate courses in many fields: \Advanced biochemical engineering, \Advanced chemical engineering kinetics, \Advanced chemical engineering thermodynamics, \Advanced theory of polymers, \Advanced transport phenomena, \Computer process control and optimization, \Electrochemical engineering, \Gas-solid reactions, \Topics on particulate technology, and \Semiconductor processing. Students who pass the entrance and qualifying examinations may enter the doctoral program. A minimum of 15 credits of course work beyond a Master's degree, including at least 9 credits in chemical engineering, is required. A dissertation that offers a contribution to chemical engineering science and an oral examination are also required for the completion of the Doctor's degree. Graduate students are encouraged to take courses in other departments which are related to their research work. A part-time M.S. program for students from industry is also offered.
