OSU's Master of Science in Chemical Engineering is a discipline focused on conceiving and designing processes to produce, transform and transport materials-beginning with experimentation in the laboratory followed by implementation of the technology. Our mission is to develop human resources, professional knowledge, and the infrastructure through which chemical engineering can contribute to human welfare. Traditional careers are in the chemical, energy, and oil industries, with increasing opportunities in biotechnology pharmaceuticals.
Scholarships and Funding
Almost all doctoral students are supported by a graduate teaching or research assistantships which come with a tuition waiver and a minimum stipend of $2,300 per month. Many Masters students also receive graduate teaching or research assistantships. Students are responsible for university and college fees. If a non-resident student enrolls in 20 credit hours in a year, they will be responsible for approximately $6,800 in fees. Additional scholarships are also available in the college and individual schools.
The general credit requirement is 30 credit hours beyond the BS degree, including 24 credit hours of classwork and six credit hours of thesis research. Students must be enrolled in CHE 6010, Chemical Engineering Seminar, during the Fall and Spring semesters. The courses taken must include:
- Advanced Chemical Reaction Engineering
- Advanced Transport Phenomena
- Chemical Engineering Process Modeling
- Principles of Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics
- Introduction to Science and Engineering Research
