MS and MChE Core Curriculum
The core curriculum is made up of four courses and accounts for 48 units of the degree. The core courses are offered each year with focus on technical depth and software aptitude:
06-623 Mathematical Modeling of Chemical Engineering Processes
06-625 Chemical & Reactive Systems
06-663 Analysis & Modeling of Transport Phenomena
06-665 Process Systems Modeling
Elective courses are chosen by students in the program to fit their interests and career goals. Sampling the diverse course offerings at a world class research institution is done with the advice of the faculty in Chemical Engineering. To provide students with a base on which to make informed decisions on courses and focus on creating an engineering focused degree, students will be limited to 48 units of courses from the college of engineering in their first semester. Registering for courses outside of the college of engineering, will be through permission from the department head and in agreement with a student's course or project advisor.
