The B.S./M.S.E. program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering allows undergraduate engineering students to continue their studies toward a Master of Science in Engineering immediately after completing the Bachelor of Science. The Whiting School of Engineering offers a fifty percent tuition waiver for this program after students have completed eight full-time semesters at Hopkins.
Students may choose one of two options to complete their M.S.E degree.
Students may complete their degree with six graduate level courses and a research essay (with presentation). Click here for the full requirements list.
Students may complete their degree with ten graduate level courses. Click here for the full requirements list.
