Program Details

The Masters of Engineering in Chemical Engineering (MCE) program at Lehigh, offered through its distance-learning school, is designed to give students the sound foundational principles in chemistry that are required of the field’s professionals. Students will not only learn the technical skills and knowledge necessary to compete in the job market but also learn the critical thinking and analysis skills that will get them ahead.

A minimum of 30 credits are required for degree completion. The program contains four core courses, which are Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, Transport Processes, Chemical Reaction Engineering, and Mathematics and Methods in Chemical Engineering.

Remaining courses are considered elective requirements and can be filled with classes of interest to the individual. Elective topics range from materials processing to emulsion polymers to air pollution. When choosing elective courses, students should keep in mind that the university requires students to complete 15 credits of 400-level Chemical Engineering courses as a part of this Master’s program.

Admission into Lehigh’s MCE program generally requires an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering, although the program invites persons with other, relevant backgrounds to apply. The MCE program is offered completely online and can be completed through a combination of the university’s two distance-learning offerings, Classroom LIVE and Classroom Online, which each bring a different level of scheduling flexibility.
