MBA/MS in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering occupies a unique position at the interface between molecular sciences and many areas of engineering. Traditionally linked to fuel combustion and energy systems, today's chemical engineers are spearheading new developments in medicine, biotechnology, microelectronics, advanced materials, energy, consumer products, manufacturing, and environmental solutions. Entrepreneurs in chemical engineering are forming innovative new businesses, and chemical engineers have served as CEOs of leading global businesses including 3M, DuPont, Intel, General Electric, Union Carbide, Dow Chemical, Exxon, BASF, Gulf, and Texaco.

The Leaders for Global Operations Connection

LGO students primarily focus on biochemical and manufacturing processes facing partners such as Amgen, Pfizer and Sanofi.

Through the support of LGO industry partners who wish to invest in future leaders from the Department of Chemical Engineering, LGO students enrolled in ChemE will receive a generous fellowship. For the most current information on the LGO fellowship, visit our program costs page.
