Admission Requirements

The Master of Science requires a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering; however candidates from other engineering fields or from mathematics, biology, chemistry, or physics may be accepted into the program with possible addition of prerequisite courses.

Application Process

The URI Graduate School accepts online applications only. Please follow the application instructions and complete the online application, and upload all documents required including unofficial transcripts of all colleges/universities attended. A complete application includes 3 letters of recommendation.

The department reviews your credentials and forwards their recommendation to the Graduate School where the final decision is made, and you will be notified via email. If you are accepted and intend to matriculate, you will be required to provide original official transcripts before your start date. Please forward these transcripts directly to the Graduate School.

Prospective graduate students are welcome to reach out to individual faculty members based on their research interests. However, application review and student acceptance is done by our department graduate committee. Faculty may express an interest in an applicant and convey that interest to the graduate committee, but individual faculty members cannot admit or commit financial support to a student prior to being accepted into our graduate program.

For details and additional information consult the application procedures from the Graduate School and guidelines for international applicants.
