Chemical engineering is part of a rapidly expanding field, one that requires interdisciplinary engineers educated in both the molecular and medical sciences. With each important discovery in the health and industrial sectors, we rely on these chemical engineers to develop and implement these innovations effectively on a large scale.
The MS in Chemical Engineering program at NYU Engineering prepares you to fulfill this unique role. Our curriculum introduces you to advanced design methods and provides an in-depth look at the research and development process. Many obstacles are involved in the production, usage, and treatment of chemicals and biochemicals; our job is to equip you with the problem-solving strategies to effectively surmount them.
As a member of the program, you will have the opportunity to work closely with our leading research faculty. NYU Engineering research areas include biopolymers at interfaces, bio-sensors, dynamics of complex fluids, nanotechnology and nanomaterials, process-systems engineering, protein engineering, and biomolecular diagnostics.
In the coming years, we expect to see a significant increase in the demand for capable chemical engineers. Our graduates will be able to explore a number of exciting fields — from chemical manufacturing, energy production, and health care to biotechnology, nanotechnology, and environmental and consumer safety.
Goals and Objectives
With the MS program in Chemical Engineering, our goal is to help you:
- Absorb the fundamental principles of chemical engineering subjects;
- Complete preliminary training in preparation for a doctorate in chemical engineering;
- Enhance your mathematical, analytical, and computer skills, while exposing you to advanced design concepts;
- Gain practical knowledge and hands-on experience in laboratory and research methodology; and
- Conduct an in-depth study of a specialized chemical engineering topic through either a guided studies project or a research thesis.
A BS degree in chemical engineering or a related field of science or engineering is generally required for admission to graduate study. If you earned a bachelor’s degree from a foreign institution, you must submit Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and TOEFL scores. Applicants with degrees in other fields or from other colleges may be admitted with undergraduate or graduate deficiencies as evaluated by the graduate adviser. You will need to have had at least one course in differential equations.
