Current Students

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in the College of Engineering offers a broad program of graduate study, leading to the MS-degree and to the Ph.D. degree. The Master of Science (MS) is an intermediary degree which can lead to the Doctoral (Ph.D.) degree.

The MS-degree course study consists of core courses, advanced courses in chemical and biomolecular engineering, additional electives, and an independent thesis project.

The Doctoral, or 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. Each degree program consists of prerequisites, core courses, related theoretical and applied courses, and a dissertation project specific to the research area.

The Ohio State University Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is an accredited member of the AIChE - American Institute of Chemical Engineers (www.aiche.org) and the ACS - American Chemical Society (www.acs.org).
