New Guidelines for M.Eng. Project

Masters of Engineering Project Guidance

  • All students enrolled in the Masters of Engineering Program are required to complete a Masters of Engineering Project as a requisite for graduation.  There are several ways to accomplish this task as described below.

Those pursuing the Product Design Specialization

  • Completing CHEME 4630, Practice of Chemical Engineering Product Design, will satisfy this requirement.  Please note that CHEME 4610, Concepts of Chemical Engineering Product Design, is a fall term pre-requisite for CHEME 4630.

Those pursuing the Energy Economics and Energy Engineering Specialization

  • This requirement may be met by completing either an individual or group project sponsored by a faculty member; subject to the approval of the EEE coordinator, Professor Quraishi.
  • Alternatively, students may form a group of no less than three and no more than four and take the M. Eng version of the KHMERGAS Project in CHEME 4620.  The prerequisite for this option is to take CHEME 5220 Principles of Project Management in the fall term.

Those pursuing the Manufacturing and Industrial Biology Specialization

  • This requirement may be met by completing either an individual or group project sponsored by a faculty member; subject to the approval of the MIB coordinator, Professor Varner.
  • Alternatively, students may form a group of no less than three and no more than four and take the M. Eng. version of the GREENGENE Project in CHEME 4620.  The prerequisite for this option is to take CHEME 5220 Principles of Project Management in the fall term. 

Those interested in a project involving New Process Development

  • This requirement may be met by completing the Freeze Concentration of Aqueous Waste Project, sponsored by Professors Hurwitz and Center.  The prerequisite for this option is to take CHEME 5220 Principles of Project Management in the fall term.
