University of Dayton School of Engineering

Extensive course selection.

The University of Dayton's chemical engineering graduate program offers an extensive course selection that includes modeling, control and automation of composite processing, which only a few universities in the nation offer. The program allows for concentrations in combustion, environmental engineering and materials engineering, among others.

Typically a full-time student can complete their degree program in approximately 18 months. Most of the graduate classes are offered in the evening allowing students to take classes part time and work full time if they choose.

Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (M.S.)

Our 30-semester-hour program of lecture and laboratory components can be thesis or non-thesis with the following areas of emphasis: Agitation, chemical and bio-sensors, chemical product design, chemical reactor analysis, combustion, composites, corrosion, fuel cells, kinetics, petroleum, pollution, polymer science, process dynamics, process modeling, thermodynamics, transport phenomena, water, solid and hazardous wastes engineering. More.
