About this program

MSE in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering’s reputation is built on our leadership in research that has an impact on the world, the quality of our faculty and students, and the success of our alumni-in fields ranging from academia and a broad array of industries to entrepreneurial ventures. We are an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming community, and our excellence in research and education and our ability to make an impact on the world are tied intrinsically to the contributions and perspectives of individuals from different backgrounds.

The era of big data has opened new worlds of possibilities in our field, and our faculty are leading advances in areas such as using machine learning approaches to accelerate materials discovery and developing a multiscale algorithm to predict the structure of protein complexes from their constituent proteins.

Admission requirements

  • Except as provided herein, applicants must be in the last semester of undergraduate study at or hold a bachelor’s or graduate degree from the US regionally accredited college or university. While there is no automatic prohibition of the admission of students from the US nationally accredited colleges or universities, EP retains the right to assess an applicant’s courses and/or degrees earned from one of those institutions to determine their academic readiness for the Program. Applicants who hold degrees from international institutions are encouraged to apply and must meet requirements found on EP’s International Applicants webpage.
  • Admitted students typically have earned a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (B or above) in the latter half of their undergraduate studies (when reviewing an application, the candidate’s academic and professional background will be considered).
  • Applicants must submit official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended.
  • No GRE is required. Should you choose to submit scores, use code 4655.
