Overview

The Master of Science in Chemical and Biological Engineering  from University at Buffalo, The State University of New York School of Engineering and Applied Sciences requires a combination of coursework and/or research for a total of 30 credit hours. 

Track 1 (Thesis) 

This program provides students with rigorous hands-on training in the areas of their choice. Completing the degree typically takes two years, including class work, during which time the students participate in original research under faculty advisement as part of a research group. The study culminates in a public defense and a written thesis that is submitted to a thesis committee for approval and published in the national MS thesis repository.

Track 2 (Project)  

MS with Project also provides students with rigorous hands-on training in the areas of their choice as part of a research group. The degree typically takes two years to complete and requires a public defense attended by a committee but does not require publication of a written thesis in the national MS thesis repository. Instead, a written project report is submitted to the faculty advisor for final approval.

Track 3 (Course-focused) 

Enrolling in a course based MS allows a student to graduate with a master’s degree in 12 months (e.g. fall, spring, and summer). This degree option may be appropriate for those who require accelerated learning of a broad range of topics within the chemical engineering discipline either to achieve career advancement or to complement other advanced degrees, e.g. in business, law, or medicine.
