Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)

The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in chemical engineering helps you strengthen your technical skills so you can bring value to industry. In general, curriculum focuses on industrial practice and design and integrates subject matter across disciplines.

M.Eng. students are free to choose a course of study that best suits your professional interests and career goals. If you know you want to pursue a career doing hands-on work in chemical and biomolecular engineering, this is the program for you.

Is the M.Eng. in chemical engineering right for me?

If working in teams, conducting research, and solving problems with an engineer’s toolkit sounds like the right fit for you, you’ll likely find what you’re looking for in the M.Eng. program. The M.Eng. is a terminal degree and does not progress toward a doctoral degree—this means that after you graduate, you’ll immediately enter into the workforce and dive into your chemical engineering career with the skills and knowledge to make impactful contributions.

If you know you want to work in academia or eventually get your Ph.D. in chemical engineering, you should look into CBE’s M.S. program, which could be a better choice than the M.Eng for this desired outcome.
