About

The Chemical Engineering program from University of Washington offers a streamlined educational experience that bolsters knowledge and professional skills in chemical engineering. Students work under the guidance of our world-renowned faculty, learning about a range of fields while receiving targeted guidance in a specialty area.

Overview

Key facts

We offer the following M.S. degree programs:

  • Research Track
  • Thesis and non-thesis programs
  • Transcriptable data science degree option
  • Data Science Track
  • Capstone project requirement
  • Streamlined program intended for industry career preparation

M.S. students enroll in the same courses as our Ph.D. students. The program covers basic subjects important to all chemical engineers, including thermodynamics, transport phenomena, kinetics and applied mathematics, along with coursework tailored to student interest.

All students in the research track conduct innovative, original research in faculty-run labs. All students in the data science track complete a capstone project and specialized coursework at the intersection of data science and chemical engineering.

The Chemical Engineering program from University of Washington typically requires one to two years to complete, depending on the intensity of study and whether a thesis is produced. The data science track can be completed in 10 months (one academic year plus the summer A term).

We welcome students with undergraduate degrees in chemical engineering, as well as in other related STEM fields such as chemistry, mechanical engineering, and materials science and engineering. Students entering with a degree other than a BS ChemE, however, may require additional coursework, thereby adding time to the degree.
