Program Description

MSc in Chemical and Biological Engineering

Tufts University - School of Engineering

Graduate students enrolled in the Chemical and Biological Engineering master’s programs have the option of a master of science degree with or without a thesis. Those students enrolled in the M.S. program have the option to complete thesis research work in addition to the yearlong coursework required for a master's degree without a thesis.

Application

Applicants to the graduate program are expected to have a degree at the level of Bachelor or Master in chemical engineering. Applicants with a Bachelor of Science in chemistry and a strong foundation in physics and math are also encouraged to apply. Requirements include a basic knowledge of physics and calculus, particularly differential equations. Some exposure to transport phenomena (for example, fluid mechanics) is strongly recommended. Students who do not meet all requirements may be admitted into the program pending the successful completion of courses aimed at the fulfillment of the requirements.

Applicants to the Ph.D. or M.S. in Chemical Engineering programs are generally expected to have earned a prior degree in Chemical Engineering. Applicants with degrees in closely related engineering disciplines (such as Materials Science and Engineering or Polymer Engineering) who already have a working knowledge of the core course content of this program (i.e., partial differential equations describing heat, mass, and momentum transfer processes, chemical kinetics/reactors and catalysis, chemical thermodynamics) are also encouraged to apply. Please note that applicants with degrees in Chemistry or Biochemistry are expected to have already completed coursework in ordinary/partial differential equations (at a minimum), and ideally heat/mass/momentum transport, as well. These courses should be clearly shown on the transcript(s) and must also be described in the applicant's personal statement.
