Graduate Programs

CBE offers a PhD and MS in chemical engineering and a dual MS-MBA in conjunction with the Haslam College of Business. PhD students also have the option of adding a concentration in Energy Science and Engineering. Finally, the college offers a graduate certificate in Reliability and Maintainability Engineering with a chemical engineering concentration.

Typically, MS degrees may be completed during three semesters of full-time study or two to three years of part-time study. Obtaining a PhD takes four to five years of full-time study for students who enter with a BS degree and about three years for students who enter with an MS degree.

For questions regarding the graduate programs and/or graduate school policies as they pertain to CBE, contact Ferguson Faculty Fellow Cong Trinh, director of graduate admissions. Or, schedule a tour with the department.
