Chemical Engineering Quick Start, B.S/.M.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree Programs

The BS/MS Quick Start program in Chemical Engineering (CHE) is designed to present highly qualified UW students with the opportunity to begin graduate study while they complete their Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Chemical Engineering.

 

Additional Information


Students may apply for admission to the Quick Start program during the second semester of their junior year or during their senior year. This program allows for early planning of the graduate portion of a student’s education and provides more flexibility in the number of required courses and the order in which they are taken. The more efficient and better-planned use of time should result in reduction of the time required for obtaining the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (M.S. CHE) degree. Students who enter the Quick Start program must accept the primary respon¬sibility for actively planning their programs of study to assure timely completion of their coursework and research programs.

The Quick Start program contains two essential elements:

Qualified students may receive provisional admission to the Chemical Engineering graduate program prior to completing the normal application process. This provisional admission will permit students to make their long-term educational plans earlier in their studies, thus providing enhanced opportunities for course selection and involvement in research.

Students in the program may apply up to 6 credit hours of 5000-level courses toward both the B.S. and M.S. degree programs. By completing successfully up to 6 credit hours of graduate classes during their senior year, these students will have demonstrated their ability to do graduate-level coursework as undergraduates, easing their transition to the Chemical Engineering graduate program.

For additional information and an application form, please contact the CHE graduate program coordinator at che-info@uwyo.edu or stop by 4055 Engineering Building.
