Chemical and Biological Engineering BS/MS
The following requirements are in addition to, or further elaborate upon, those requirements outlined in The Graduate School Policy Guide.
Total Units Required for the Master's Degree: 101
The degree requirements are the same as "Coursework Master's" or "Thesis Master's" as outlined for the MS program.
Although students do not need to be enrolled in the chemical engineering major to be admitted, the MS programs will expect a level of substantive competency equivalent to the completion of the following courses:
- Thermodynamics (CHEM_ENG 211-0 Thermodynamics preferred, or equivalent)
- Fluid mechanics (CHEM_ENG 321-0 Fluid Mechanics or equivalent)
- Heat or mass transfer (CHEM_ENG 322-0 Heat Transfer or CHEM_ENG 323-0 Mass Transfer, or equivalent)
- Kinetics/reaction engineering (CHEM_ENG 307-0 Kinetics and Reactor Engineering)
Courses may not double count between the MS and the BA/BS. 10 new units of MS level coursework are required for the completion of the MS degree.
