Chemical Engineering (Professional Engineer Program), MSCHe


Return to John A. Swanson School of Engineering Return to: John A. Swanson School of Engineering

Engineers working full-time outside the University who wish to continue advanced study in chemical engineering may apply for admission to the Professional Engineer Program. It differs from the regular MS program in two important respects:

  1. Admission to the program is limited to engineers working full-time outside the University in chemical engineering or a related area.
  2. Course work replaces the MS thesis requirement.
  3. The student completes a 3-credit special project course, CHE 2910 , during their last term in the program. This course could be satisfied, for example by a project with a faculty member, or a project based on their professional work for which a faculty member agrees to serve as advisor. Submission of a term paper, which is completed under the advisement of a member of the faculty, is required.

A minimum of 31 credit hours of course work is required.


These must include the five core courses and elective courses listed below.

Note:


Up to 6 credit hours may be elected in approved graduate course offerings outside the department. Students who wish to enter this program should first apply for admission to graduate study in chemical engineering. Once admitted, students can then request admission to the Professional Engineering Program.
