College of Engineering / Program / Master of Science - Chemical Engineering

Why this degree?

The non-thesis Master of Science is oriented toward engineering design and practice. Some of the specialties students will study include: surface science, biochemical engineering, catalysis, pulp and paper engineering, environmental engineering, waste conversion, computer-aided process design and simulation, novel bioseparations systems, chemical kinetics and reactor design.

You are eligible to apply if...

  • You hold a bachelor's degree or equivalent in chemical engineering from an institution of recognized standing
  • Have the undergraduate experience in related areas of general physics, calculus, differential equations, chemistry, etc. 
  • If you have an undergraduate degree in another science, math or engineering discipline, you will be required to complete a two-semester online bridge program through Michigan State University ( and earn letter grades of A (or possibly B.)

To complete the program you must...

  • Complete 30 semester credit hours in chemical engineering graduate (6000/7000 level) coursework, including:
    • CHEN 6116 Pulp and Paper Engineering  3 hours
    • CHEN 6172 Digital Process Control  3 hours
    • CHEN 6466 Process Simulation Synthesis and Optimization  3 hours
    • CHEN 6656 Hazardous Materials Management and Engineering  2 hours
    • CHEN 6706 Advanced Separation Processes  2 hours
    • CHEN 7106 Transport Phenomena  3 hours
