Distance Learning

The Auburn Chemical Engineering Department offers a nonthesis masters degree through the College of Engineering Outreach Program http://eng.auburn.edu/online/graduate-degrees/index.htmlfocusing on chemical engineers who are professional employed. Students from other disciplines may need to complete undergraduate courses or a bridge program prior to admission. The degree can be achieved entirely by outreach courses; there is no residency requirement. The courses are provided via the internet with arrangements for examinations with test proctors provided by the business or industry where the chemical engineers are employed.

The course of study is sufficiently flexible to allow the chemical engineering professionals as graduate students to individually tailor an appropriate plan of study to meet the student's background and professional interests with the assistance of the Program Advisor, Dr. Jin Wang, Chair of the Graduate Program Committee.

 For both options, a total of 30 semester hours of work is necessary and at least 21 hours must be in chemical engineering (CHEN). A total of 12 hours must be taken at the 7000 level or higher, the remaining 18 hours must be at the 6000 level or higher. The following core courses must be taken for a total of 9 hours:

CHEN 7100 Transport Phenomena 3
CHEN 7200 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics 3
CHEN 7250 Chemical Reaction Engineering 3
Total Hours 9

Please contact the College of Engineering and Business Graduate Outreach Program offices of Outreach Student Services for arrangements (tuition, arrangement for tapes, proctors of tests, courses offered by other departments, etc.). http://eng.auburn.edu/online/graduate-program/index.html
