Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Chemical Engineering Texas A&M University




Course info


The PhD requires ninety six hours beyond a baccalaureate degree or sixty four hours beyond a master’s degree. These totals include a significant amount of credit for research (CHEN 691). The specific course requirements imposed by the Department of Chemical Engineering are that a PhD student must complete a minimum of 29 hours of formal course work beyond the baccalaureate degree. These formal courses are
classified into two categories: required courses and electives.

The following are the required 17 hours of courses that all PhD students must complete:

CHEN 604: Chemical Engineering Process Analysis (3)
CHEN 623: Applications of Thermodynamics to Chemical Engineering (3)
CHEN 624: Chemical Engineering Kinetics and Reactor Design (3)
CHEN 629: Transport Phenomena (3)
CHEN 601: Chemical Engineering Laboratory Safety and Health (1)
CHEN 681: Seminar (2)
CHEN 695: Graduate Mentoring Seminar (2)

Total Credits: 17 "core" credits

The remaining 12 credit hours of formal course work (typically four, three-credit courses) are subject to the following restrictions:

The electives must be formal graduate-level courses and should be approved by the Graduate Advisor. Only technical (science or engineering) courses can satisfy these requirements. In special cases, up to three credit hours of advanced undergraduate level courses may be included.
At least three hours of credit must be for courses taken outside the Department of Chemical Engineering.
Graduate courses completed at other institutions and passed with a grade of B or better may be used towards satisfying the departmental electives. With approval of the Graduate Advisor, up to nine credit hours may be transferred from other institutions. These courses cannot have been used towards another degree.
Graduate courses cannot be retaken for credit.

The remainder of the credit hours (usually 67 hours) will be CHEN 691: Research. Students who enter the PhD program with a BS must spend a minimum of two academic years in resident study. Students who enter the PhD program with a master's degree must spend a minimum of one academic year (2 adjacent terms) in resident study. To satisfy the continuous residence requirement, the student must complete a minimum of 9 credit hours per semester or 6 credit hours for a 10-week summer semester.
