Chemical and Biomedical Engineering Department

Academic Programs

Why Cleveland?

In the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, in addition to the Bachelor of Chemical Engineering degree, we offer two Masters of Science degrees:

  • Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (MS BME)
  • Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (MS CHE)

These degree programs, although with many points in common and overlapping classes, are also different as they address different goals/aims.

The CHE Program is intended for students aiming for a professional career in the Chemical Processing Industry (CPI); or interested in the application of Chemical Engineering principles to problems relevant to Materials Science, the environment, Energy, and related applications

Why Chemical Engineering?

The BME Program, on the other hand, is intended for those students seeking employment in the biomedical or biotechnology industry, or other interdisciplinary areas bridging Medicine and Engineering.

Biomedical Engineering Program Details

The graduate degrees also provide an scenario to experience life in Graduate School, while providing a solid foundation for those students planning to continue doctoral studies in Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or related disciplines.

Our graduate programs are also part of a College-wide Program leading to a

  • Doctorate in Engineering (DRE) degree.
  • with Specializations in Applied Biomedical or Chemical Engineering.
