Chemical engineers conceive and design processes to produce, transform and transport materials — beginning with experimentation in the laboratory and followed by implementation of technologies in full-scale production.

Stanford undergraduates with strong academic records may apply to study for a master’s degree while they are completing their bachelor’s degree(s).


Our HCP Master of Science (MS), available completely online, is a terminal degree program for those who want to gain advanced knowledge in a focused area of chemical engineering to pursue a career in industry or a professional degree such as medicine, law, education or business.

The Doctor of Philosophy in Chemical Engineering is awarded after the completion of a minimum of 135 units of graduate work, satisfactory completion of any additional university requirements, and the following departmental requirements. Completion of an MS degree is not a prerequisite for beginning, pursuing or completing doctoral work.
