The principal graduate degree offered by the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is the Ph.D. The Ph.D. requires 90 graduate credit hours beyond the B.S., and requires a written dissertation to be submitted and defended orally as part of the final examination.
The Department also offers three additional degree programs. The Master of Science degree in chemical engineering is a research-based program that centers on the development and defense of a master's thesis. The Master of Engineering degree in chemical engineering is a project-based program. Also available is a program of study that combines a Master of Engineering and a Master of Business Administration. All the Master's degree programs require 30 graduate credit hours to be completed beyond the B.S.
