Ph.D.- Chemical Engineering, M.S.-Chemical Engineering
The Department of Chemical Engineering at BYU conducts programs of graduate study leading to master of science (M.S.), and doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. The M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are research oriented, requiring an original thesis. The focus of the program is on development of the student's ability to conduct independent, creative, scientific research. Graduate students are expected to assume a major responsibility for their own progress and to develop habits of inquiry that will ensure continuing intellectual development throughout their careers. Emphasis is generally placed first on a full understanding of the principles of math, engineering, and science, and then on the application of those principles to present-day engineering problems.
