Master of Science in Chemical Manufacturing Management (MS)


The degree in Chemical Manufacturing Management is designed primarily for students working in the chemical manufacturing industry who are looking to increase their understanding of chemical processes, and their ability to quantitatively optimize manufacturing logistics. 

Requirements for Admission to the Master of Science Program in Chemical Manufacturing Management

Students who wish to be considered for admission to graduate study leading toward the Master of Science in Chemical Manufacturing Management (CMM) degree must have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college and have completed an undergraduate major or equivalent in chemistry or a closely related discipline, with an overall grade point average of at least 2.75.  In exceptional cases a student with a lower grade point average may be admitted conditionally, and after completion of nine hours of graduate work may be admitted to full standing by that student's advisory committee.  For international students, a minimum score of 550 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for unconditional admission. Applicants with TOEFL scores between 500 and 550 may be admitted on a conditional basis, but their proficiency in English will be further evaluated upon their arrival on campus, and they may be required to undertake additional study of English prior to beginning graduate work in the program.   Because the selection process is competitive, applicants are strongly encouraged to provide GRE scores with their application materials.

Degree Requirements

Each candidate must complete 30 credits of coursework spanning the chemistry and engineering technology programs.  For students who wish to complete a thesis, an additional 3 credits of thesis research (CHE 698) is also required.

Additional inquiries into the CMM program may be sent to the graduate coordinator at
