Masters in Chemical Engineering

While studying for a Masters in Chemical Engineering, students often touch on several subjects including process control, chemical kinetics, surface science, polymer composites, combustion synthesis, and vibrational spectroscopy. Most students complete all of their coursework within two years, while some also add a final Masters thesis. While taking coursework, students will learn scientific processes and practical application to various compounds. A few will also add courses in technical management that will give an advantage to move into company management. Most graduates go on to work for universities as well as in private industry. Some will continue on to get a PhD as well.

Getting a degree online presents fantastic opportunities for people in all walks of life. Some people choose to go back to school later in life while others pursue their education right out of high school. For those that want to get an education while working in balancing family life, getting an online degree is the way to go. Chemical Engineering Master's Programs provide the same professional opportunities as those are in a traditional university setting. Tuition is often lower. Student satisfaction is usually often much higher. Students can complete classroom activities and assignments as they have time. That means that they can work their education schedule around work and family.

Chemical engineers can enter private industry as well as research and development in a university. They also work in government positions as well. Many chemical engineers find growing opportunities in specialty areas such as biomaterials, nanomaterials, polymers, and composites. According to the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), those with advanced chemistry degrees can expect to start a salary around $60,000 up to $70,000 right out of school. That figure could be higher in some industries and in some geographical locations. With experience, salaries usually go up.
