Core Graduate Classes in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
A graduate degree in chemical engineering requires mastery of the core fundamentals of the discipline. These fundamentals are represented by four core courses – CBE 506 , CBE 531 , CBE 547  and CBE 579 . 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.

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