Applicants are expected to have a baccalaureate degree in chemical engineering with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Students with undergraduate degrees in chemistry may also be admitted on condition that they take additional courses in chemical engineering and mathematics to make up any deficiencies in their background. International students must achieve a TOEFL score of at least 550.
Thirty credit hours are required for the degree, including courses in thermodynamics, reactor design, transport phenomena, and mathematical methods. A thesis is optional, but required of students who receive assistantships.
