Chemical Engineering Professional Master's Program

The Charles D. Davidson School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University initiated the Professional Master’s Program (PMP) to meet the needs of the ever-evolving work environment for chemical engineers. The purpose of establishing this program was to provide 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 as technical managers.

The PMP is a full time, 12 – 16 month, non-thesis M.S. program designed specifically to prepare graduates for specialized careers in industry, academia, and government. Through a combination of rigorous coursework in chemical engineering, business and management, and a summer research project, students obtain advanced specialized education and professional management skill training to prepare them for success as technical managers.
