Graduate Programs in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering graduate programs introduce advanced designs, research and development. The department offers graduate programs leading to a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering and Doctor of Philosophy in Chemical Engineering. A BS degree in chemical engineering or a related field of engineering is generally required for admission to graduate study. An applicant who has earned a bachelor’s degree from a foreign institution must submit Graduate Record Examination 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. Students must have had at least one course in differential equations. NYU Tandon research areas include biopolymers at interfaces, bio-sensors, dynamics of complex fluids, nanotechnology and nanomaterials, process-systems engineering, protein engineering and biomolecular diagnostics.

Goals and Objectives

The objective of the MS degree in chemical engineering is to provide an understanding of the fundamental principles of chemical engineering subjects. The program enhances mathematical and analytical skills and emphasizes advanced design concepts. Students in the MS program develop a deeper understanding of engineering principles, and laboratory and research skills. They also conduct an in-depth study of a specialized chemical engineering topic through a guided studies project or a research thesis.

The PhD degree in chemical engineering provides advanced knowledge of fundamentals and research in emerging fields in chemical engineering. Research skills are refined, and the candidate performs original research that advances the understanding of a specific chemical engineering discipline. Faculty plan programs of study individually with each candidate. Systematic study toward a doctorate is guided by a guidance committee appointed by the Office of Research and PhD Programs.
