University of Maryland, A. James Clark School of Engineering
Campus Part time 1 - 5 years September 2017 USA College Park

The Graduate Program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering offers research and education opportunities leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. [+]

The Graduate Program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering offers research and education opportunities leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is well-equipped for graduate research in aerosol science and engineering, biochemical engineering, computational modeling, fluid mechanics and mixing, fuel cell technology, metabolic engineering and systems biology, nanoparticle technology, polymer processing and characterization, polymer reaction engineering, process control, thermodynamics and transport phenomena, and systems research. The Department maintains a distributed computing network consisting of research laboratories and a PC laboratory. Major research facilities including electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and NMR are coordinated through a variety of laboratories. General Requirements Before graduate courses in Chemical Engineering are attempted, the candidate must fulfill certain minimal course prerequisites either by previous experience or by taking selected undergraduate courses. These minimal prerequisites are descibed in the GPA and prerequisite policy page. Some of these prerequisites may be fulfilled by concurrent registration if necessary. No courses numbered below 400 may count towards the minimal 30 credits required for the degree. A maximum of 6 credits of 400 level courses may count towards the degree subject to prior approval by the Graduate Director. Graduate courses with an EMPM designation cannot be used to satisfy the minimum 30 hours without prior permission of the Graduate Director. All graduate students (full and part-time, on and off campus) are expected to attend all research seminars, i.e., those not specifically directed to 1st year students. Students that fail to regularly attend research seminars will receive a notice from the director of graduate studies; extreme cases can be considered insufficient progress towards degree. Exceptions to this requirement will be made on a case-by-case basis by the graduate program committee; such exceptions include off-campus students that demonstrate regular participation in an on-campus seminar series that takes place at a more convenient time, or an off-campus technical seminar series. Students granted this exception should turn in a list of seminars attended to the director of graduate students before the end of each spring and fall semester. The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Enginering's overall expectations for all students enrolled in its graduate program are that they will: make significant scholarly contributions to the field of chemical and biomolecular engineering, which is primarily measured by publications in peer-reviewed journals; and demonstrate an ability to communicate research findings to an audience of their peers in the field of chemical and biomolecular engineering, which is primarily measured by presentations at conferences. These publications and presentations must be documented on the final page(s) of each student's written thesis. For details, see "M.S. Thesis," below. GPA The Graduate School requires students to maintain a 3.0 GPA in all courses for credit since enrollement. The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering further requires that students attain at least a 3.0 GPA in tthe four required graduate core courses–ENCH 610, 620, 630 and 640–where this GPA is computed using the letter+/- system. Typical Plans of Study In principle, a candidate fulfilling all of the General Course requirements can complete the requirements for the Master of Science degree in one year. However, it is unusual for students to complete their program in less than 3 semesters. For candidates having a previous degree in a non-Chemical Engineering technical area, a 2 to 2.5 year program is usually necessary. An example plan of study is given in the M.S. Course Requirement Advising Form (.docx). Individual plans of study will be developed upon request by the Departmental Graduate Director. [-]

Master in Engineering Materials ScienceThe Master’s programme in Engineering Materials Science is characterised by a cross-functional approach – focusing on both the understanding and study of current materials, processes and applications, as well as the development of new materials and processes.Programme outlineThe programme is open to students with materials backgrounds and has three different tracks, each focusing on different complimentary aspects of material and process development, while incorporating each students’ individual experience in the area. This makes the programme both comprehensive in the fundementals of the field, and tailored to meet personal academic and career goals.Track 1 - Industrial Materials (IMTA)Materials such as steel, lightweight metals and semi-conductors have made development possible for many years and will continue to do so in the future. Through the choice of courses, the student may decide to specialise in Materials Design, Process Science or, preferably, a combination of both areas. This track is only for students with a solid background in Materials Science and Engineering and Metallurgy.Track 2 - Materials and Process Design (MDNA)Materials and Process Design has, like Industrial Materials, a strong focus on materials and processes, properties and design. The content of the courses offered within this specialisation will cover all of the different areas of Engineering Materials Science and Metallurgy during the first term. This track is only for students with a background in Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Science and Engineering or Engineering Physics.Track 3 - Materials Processing (MPTA)Materials Processing has a strong focus on materials in general and provides inter-disciplinary courses within materials processing. The content of the courses offered within this specialisation will cover the areas of casting, plastic forming, modelling and simulation, and mechanical metallurgy. This track is open for students with different materials backgrounds, preferably Mechanical Engineering.Degree projectThe degree project is one semester of full-time work and is undertaken during the second year. Typically, the preceding summer is used to prepare for and specify the thesis project. The project is then carried out in the area defined by the courses taken during the first year of the programme and may be conducted in industry, at a KTH department or in another technical university or research institute anywhere in the world.Career prospectsStudents graduating with a Master of Science degree specialising in Engineering Materials Science are in great demand throughout the world. The education also provides a solid scientific foundation for further research studies at KTH or abroad after graduating.... [-]

As competition between companies is getting tougher as the number of products on the market increases, many are realising the importance of product development and material knowledge as a competitive means. This programme covers the entire product development process, from conceptual engineering design to materials and manufacturing processes. The work of engineers within product development is creative and offers a great deal of variety. This Master's programme (two years) qualifies students for positions with the manufacturers and suppliers that develop and produce components or as consultants. Emphasis is placed on design and construction of technical components and products in regards to customer demands, use, producibility and production methods. Vehicles, household appliances, medical equipment and certain sporting goods are all examples of products made up of complex components. Making complex things simpler The steady increase in the use of computer support makes possible new methods, which are parallel to the entire product development process. With the help of advanced computer tools in design and construction, real and virtual prototypes can be produced much faster, and the time needed for development can be shortened. In addition, a product can be studied and tested at an early stage of product development for its design, usability, durability, safety and producibility. Important aspects of work with the development of components and products include the analysis of function and performance, the choice of materials and the methods of production. This programme gives an understanding of the theory behind and the practical use of the computer based tools needed for these tasks. Industry contacts and guest speakers Some of the courses include project work. Students can, in smaller groups, analyse and make suggestions regarding real-life problems taken straight from the industry. Guest speakers from the field also take part in instruction. A thesis at the end of the programme helps students apply their theoretical knowledge and gain insight as to the research and development within the industry and the university. Extensive knowledge about materials is also acquired. The School of Engineering has well-equipped research labs for materials engineering and computer simulation. Next generation of engineers The School of Engineering, Jönköping University, is a member of the prestigious collaborative between leading engineering schools worldwide - the CDIO Initiative™.
