Master of Engineering Science

The Master of Engineering Science is a thesis option program that prepares students to independently develop solution in develop solution in develop solution in their selected engineering disciplines. The student should select a department academic advisor and a graduate committee must be formed before the student has completed 15 semester hours of graduate work. No credit toward a graduate degree will be granted unless approved by the student’s graduate committee.

Degree Requirements

  1. All College of Graduate Studies general degree requirements
  2. A minimum of 9 semester hours of core courses (ENGR 5331, ENGR 5332 and ENGR 5333 or those approved by Senior Academic Advisor of Engineering Graduate Programs)
  3. A minimum of 15 semester hours (five courses) of electives. Other courses approved by department graduate advisor may satisfy part of this requirement
  4. Satisfactory completion and defense of a Master’s thesis (a minimum of 6 semester hours of ENGR 5390 and ENGR 5391)


Why Pursue a Master of Engineering Science Degree in Chemical Engineering?

With a Master of Engineering Science degree, you will deepen your knowledge about various aspects of chemical engineering beyond that which you learned as an undergraduate. You will have the opportunity to conduct research and contribute something new to the field by doing experiments to prove or disprove a point and taking part in research publications.
