The University Scholars (BS/MS) Program is designed specifically for outstanding students to complete the requirements for both their bachelor’s degree and a master of science in chemical engineering in an accelerated five year period.
The University Scholars Program is intended for very capable and highly-motivated undergraduate students who wish to pursue graduate study in the department.
Students must maintain a 3.3 GPA. A plan of study should be developed with the help of an adviser. The master’s degree earned through the Scholars Program is non-thesis and will not involve research, only class work. The stipends associated with graduate school generally do not apply for the Scholars Program, as the stipends are for students pursuing a thesis (research-based) master’s degree.
