The Chemical Engineering program at Drexel University integrates current chemical engineering science with the growing fields of engineering applications and processes, emphasizing engineering design and scientific analysis. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


The Chemical Engineering program at Drexel University  intends to develop broadly educated individuals who are knowledgeable in modern theories, cognizant of the behavior of engineering systems, and aware of current mathematical and engineering tools that are useful for the solution of problems in complex processes and systems, especially those in the fields of chemical, environmental, biochemical, and materials process engineering. 

Key facts: 

Areas of particular strength include biological engineering, energy and the environment, multiscale modeling and process systems engineering, and polymer science and engineering.

Programs are arranged to meet the needs and interests of individual students. The plan of study is initially formulated in consultation with the departmental graduate advisor and subsequently guided by the thesis advisor.

A graduate co-op is available for the Master of Science program.

General requirements

  • Students should fulfill Drexel University's general requirements for admission to graduate studies. The subjects normally included in an undergraduate program in chemical engineering provide a satisfactory background. Decisions regarding prerequisite qualifications for students who may be deficient in some areas are made after consultation with the departmental graduate advisor.
  • The core courses are designed for students with undergraduate training in chemical engineering; however, students with a background in biological sciences and engineering can also enroll in the core courses after completing the necessary basic engineering courses and disciplinary chemical engineering courses. Programs for such students are determined on an individual basis after consultation with the departmental graduate advisor.
  • The General (Aptitude) Test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required for applicants pursuing full-time study.
