Chemical Engineering (M.S.)

Earning a master of science in engineering with a concentration in chemical engineering will develop your expertise in higher-level design and project management while deepening your knowledge of chemical engineering fundamentals. 

Core engineering courses coupled with courses in the chemical engineering concentration provide both specialization and a broad fundamental knowledge of the discipline. Example areas of particular emphasis by the department include materials, bioprocessing, corrosion, solid-state electrochemistry, catalysis, environmental engineering, and sustainability. Both thesis and non-thesis programs are available.

The College of Engineering at UL Lafayette was ranked among the country's best in the U.S. News & World Report's 2023 edition of "Best Graduate Schools."

Applicants must have either (1) an engineering degree from an ABET/EAC accredited program or (2) an engineering degree from a non-accredited engineering program or (3) a degree from a closely aligned, non-engineering major. Non-engineering degreed applicants from calculus-based majors will be considered; however, in most cases, leveling undergraduate courses will be required to ensure that the student has an acceptable engineering knowledge base. Required leveling courses will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

This program prepares its students for licensure or certification within the state of Louisiana. For more information regarding credentialing requirements, including important information if you plan to move out of state, please visit the licensure programs page.
