Graduate Degree Programs
Doctoral (Ph.D.) Degree: The Ph.D.-degree is a recognized terminal degree in the practical and creative areas in chemical engineering. The Ph.D. candidate is one who understands and demonstrates what it means to be a working researcher. It prepares students for independent research careers in industry or academia. Ph.D. students are fully funded.

Master's Non-Thesis Program: a course-work based degree that provides students with added depth in the technical aspects of the field and breadth through elective courses and includes an independent project. This program can be full-time or part-time. Full-time students can complete the requirements in three semesters. This program is also a good option for working professionals looking to complete their master’s degree on a part-time basis.

Master's Thesis Program: a course and project-based degree that prepares students for a variety of career paths. Students complete both coursework and an independent research project that provides specialization in a sub-field of chemical engineering. Full-time students are expected to complete this degree in 1.5 - 2 years.

BS/MS Program: Please see this webpage for more information before you apply: Combined BS/MS Program in CBE.

Opportunities to visit Ohio State
There are a number of events throughout the year for students to visit Ohio State and the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.  There is a University-wide Visitation Day Autumn quarter that is by invitation only. There is also a College of Engineering visitation day that is open to those students who register.  There will be an Open House in Winter for those students who have already been admitted for the following Autumn Semester.
