*CHBE 301, 302, 422, 424 are equivalent.
Master of Engineering: 30 Credits or 10 Courses
A Master of Engineering degree in chemical and biomolecular engineering requires the completion of four core courses and six technical electives approved by the advisor. All electives must be part of an integrated program of study. There is no research or thesis required for this degree.
Graduate Certificate in Engineering: 12 Credits or 4 Courses
Students pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Engineeing must complete the following courses:
- CHBE620, Methods of Engineering Analysis (formerly ENCH620)
- CHBE630, Transport Phenomena (formerly ENCH630)
- CHBE610, Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics (formerly ENCH610), or CHBE640, Advanced Chemical Reaction Kinetics (formerly ENCH640)
- One additional technical elective
Degree Planning Sheets
All students are expected to complete a preliminary course plan for their intended degree program (10-course for MEng or 4-course for GCEN) with the Senior Academic Advisor by the end of their first semester of study. The Degree Planning Sheet lists the core and technical elective requirements for each program, and all courses that are pre-approved for that program. Alternative technical electives must be approved by the same academic advisor.
Degree planning sheets for all academic programs can be found here.
