Research areas include advanced materials processing, molecular modeling, nanotechnology, corrosion and flow in multiphase systems, biocorrosion and biofouling mitigation, electrochemical engineering, batteries and fuel cells, energy and pollution control, air quality and atmospheric chemistry, and biomedical and biochemical engineering. Active collaborations exist with professors of biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, and civil and mechanical engineering. Normative time to completion is 2-3 years.
Program Learning Outcomes
- Apply graduate-level concepts in engineering mathematics, kinetics and reactor design, thermodynamics, and transport phenomena to engineering problems.
- Develop expertise in one or more areas of technical specialization.
- Plan and execute a strategy to test a scientific hypothesis or proposed engineering solution, using prior published knowledge as a foundation.
- Communicate advanced engineering knowledge and the results of novel research and development activities in professional venues.
- Develop habits of collaboration, leadership, initiative, safe performance of work, and ethical conduct.
Opportunities for Graduates
The program prepares students for doctoral study and industrial positions requiring advanced understanding of chemical engineering principles, some subject matter specialization, and project management experience. Graduates are poised to become leaders in government and industry positions and contribute to improving the human condition.

GRE scores are no longer required. Most successful applicants will have a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering or a closely allied field. Those whose educational preparation does not include the full range of required coursework typical of an accredited bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering may be admitted with requirements for additional coursework to fill such gaps. Applicants lacking background in mathematics through differential equations, in general chemistry, in general physics, or in thermodynamics will not be considered. The Non-Thesis Option is available only to students concurrently employed in an engineering role. Many applicants qualify for an online application fee waiver; please inquire.
This program permits full-time enrollment in residence at Ohio University, and an I-20 may be issued based on admission to this program.
The M.S. in Chemical Engineering requires a minimum of 41 credit hours and successful completion of the student’s approved course of study. The course of study will, minimally, include the following:
