Broaden your engineering foundation and achieve career advancement.

Broaden your engineering and business knowledge by earning a master of chemical engineering and MBA at the same time. The dual degree is possible with either the thesis or non-thesis master’s degree in chemical engineering.

Program Requirements

The dual degree program requires 59 credits rather than the 74 required if you were to pursue each degree separately, because the dual degree program counts 15 engineering credits toward the MBA. In order to take advantage of this credit savings, you must be admitted to the dual degree program before completing either the engineering or MBA program.​
