About this course

Entry Requirements

  • Students holding baccalaureate degrees in Chemical Engineering, other engineering fields, mathematics, or basic sciences are eligible for admission to the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (MSChE) program. 
  • Students not holding a BSChE will be required to take a series of six (6) junior-level courses. Alternatively, these students have the option of obtaining a Master of Science in Engineering (MSE). The MSE requires fewer junior-level courses and enables students to begin their research within the first semester. A maximum of twelve (12) semester hours from other institutions may be accepted at WVU for credit toward the Master's degree. The Chemical Engineering Department may require Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores or other evidence to assist in judging a student's chances for success in a graduate program. 
  • To be eligible for admission as a regular student, an applicant must have a baccalaureate degree as specified above and a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 (on a basis of A = 4.0) in all previous college work. Students entering the program without a BSChE will receive a letter specifying the additional course work which they must take in the first two semesters. To remain in good standing, a regular student must achieve and maintain a minimum overall 3.0 GPA in all graduate level courses as well as in all junior level courses. 
  • Applicants who cannot meet these conditions may be considered for admission in a conditional category. Students admitted with deficiencies in their undergraduate programs are required to take some chemical engineering courses as prerequisites for graduate courses. 
  • International students must demonstrate proficiency in communicating in English (a minimum TOFEL score of 550, or iBT score of 79, or IELTS score of 6.5).
  • International students must also provide Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores. These requirements are stated as a condition for admission.
