The Chemical Engineering M.S. program at Tennessee Tech provides students advanced engineering skills and state-of-the-art knowledge in selected areas for positions in industry. Students focus their programs on specific interests, completing a research project of their choosing. Research topics have recently been completed in the areas of materials science and engineering, heat transfer and energy conservation, thermodynamics modeling, air pollution control and process design, and biotechnology.
The program is research oriented and requires a thesis. Graduate faculty work with students in advanced and in-depth studies in these topics; provide guidance in fundamental and applied research; help develop powers of analysis, synthesis and critical thinking; and prepare students to follow academic and research careers through doctoral-level studies.
The program consists of 24 semester hours of course work and a minimum of six thesis hours.
Tennessee Tech houses three state-supported Centers of Excellence: the Electric Power Center, the Manufacturing Research Center, and the Center for the Management, Utilization and Protection of Water Resources. The three centers offer excellent research opportunities, the use of state-of-the-art equipment and funding for graduate students in engineering.
