About Welcome to the Chemical Engineering Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar. We are delighted that you have chosen to pursue a graduate degree in this program. Both the branch campus and the program have requirements that you must satisfy to complete your degree. For further details please refer to the Texas A&M University Graduate Catalog. Degree Requirements The general requirements outlined by Texas A&M University for the various graduate degrees appear in the Graduate Catalog, which also provides an excellent summary of the major steps required to fulfill the requirements for each degree. You should obtain a copy of the Graduate Catalog and become familiar with the requirements for your degree. The two graduate degrees administered by the Chemical Engineering Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar are the Master of Science and the Master of Engineering. The following sections describe the requirements for each of these degrees in more detail. A Degree Plan, which specifies formally the exact courses required and the Advisory Committee for each student, is prepared by the student, in consultation with the Chair of his/her Advisory Committee. For all of the degree plans listed below, students must demonstrate minimum scholarship standards to remain in the graduate program.
