The Professional Master’s Program (PMP) provides students from both chemical engineering and non-chemical engineering undergraduate backgrounds the opportunity to supplement their education with a curriculum that prepares them for success in industry. The PMP provides students with the technical skills they would acquire in a traditional MS program, while also developing skills needed in industry, such as leadership and management skills, business and financial skills, oral and written communication skills, teamwork, and defining and managing projects.
What sets our program apart is our ability to tailor coursework to the career goals and backgrounds of our students. For students that do not have a background in chemical engineering, we offer prerequisite courses to introduce students to chemical engineering and to the fundamental and introductory skills that are needed to successfully begin masters-level coursework. Students with more advanced backgrounds can begin in higher-level classes.
