Four Chemical Engineering Coures are required for M.Eng. This curriculum provides for five chemical engineering courses marked x.  Only one elective needs to be a ChemE elective

The project requirement is covered by ChemE 4630. Students who wish to do an individual product design project in addition to the project in ChemE 4630 may do so as an independent study with a faculty advisor by enrolling in ChemE 5999.

Courses with less than 3 credits can be combined to fulfill the 3 credits required for an elective area. Students who wish to fulfill an elective by taking a course that is not listed above should send the course title and description to the M.Eng. Director for approval before taking the course.
