Core Graduate Classes in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

A graduate degree in chemical engineering requires the mastery of the core fundamentals of the discipline. These fundamentals are represented by five core courses – CBE 506 , CBE 531 , CBE 547 , CBE 548 , CBE 551 . Both the master’s (thesis and non-thesis) and doctoral degrees in chemical engineering require the successful completion of these core courses.

Additional Coursework

In addition to the core classes, supplementary course work appropriate for each graduate degree will be needed. The course work beyond the core courses is determined in consultation with the student’s advisor and dissertation or thesis committee and must be approved by the committee and the department head.

Intercollegiate Graduate Minor in Computational Science (IGMCS)

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering participates in the intercollegiate graduate minor in computational science (IGMCS) program. Any student pursuing a Master’s or PhD with a major in chemical engineering can receive a minor in computational science by completing the appropriate IGMCS requirements. For further information, see the description of the Computational Science Minor  listed under the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering also contributes courses to the IGMCS program curriculum.
