Make no mistake: at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, the academic requirements for Chemical Engineering at MIT are rigorous. Yet at the same time, they are not monolithic. Students have the freedom to choose a course of study that best aligns with their interests and career goals. With four undergraduate degree programs and three distinct graduate-level degrees, the department's academic offerings are representative of the breadth of the chemical engineering field today.
Academic advisors help students build off the core subjects with electives and other essential courses, creating a comprehensive and challenging curriculum taught by our extraordinary faculty.
