Graduate Program

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering offers three levels of graduate degree programs in Chemical Engineering, Biological Engineering, and Environmental Engineering: Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), Master of Science (M.Sc.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees.  The M.Eng. requirements are 8 graduate level one-term courses. The M.Sc. requirements normally include at least four graduate level one-term courses beyond the B.Sc. degree, and the completion and an oral defense of a thesis. The Ph.D. program requires successful completion of a comprehensive qualifying examination, at least six graduate level one-term courses and completion and an oral defense of a thesis on original research.

The first step in applying to a graduate degree program is to complete our pre-qualification form for our review.

Once the Graduate Committee has reviewed your form, the department will contact you and advise as to how you should proceed.

Formal applications to the College of Graduate Studies should not be submitted until you have submitted your pre-qualification form for review and then received approval and instruction from this department to proceed to a formal application.

All of the above information is available in greater detail from the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (CGPS) for both the Chemical Engineering graduate programs and the Biological Engineering graduate programs.

Additional information can be found in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering Graduate Student Handbook.
