Sequential Undergraduate/Graduate Study (SUGS)

The following programs are available for Chemical Engineering students interested in pursuing joint BSE and MSE and MEng degrees. For more information on each of these programs, including program requirements and graduate program contact information, please visit the Master’s and SUGS Programs page.

B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering / M.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering

This SUGS program is open to all undergraduate students from Chemical Engineering who have achieved senior standing (85 credit hours or more) and have an overall cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher.

B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering / M.S.E. in Chemical Engineering

A University of Michigan undergraduate with a GPA of 3.5 or greater may apply, after completing the first term of the junior year, for admission to the departmental SUGS combined degree program leading to both the baccalaureate and master’s degrees. Most students selecting this program have chosen not to pursue a PhD but wish to have a greater depth in the fundamentals before embarking on an industrial career.

B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering / M.Eng. in Energy Systems Engineering

The program aims to prepare students to design and implement energy systems for innovative applications. An overall GPA of 3.2 or above is required.

B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering / M.S.E. in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering

Undergraduate students who will be within 6 credit hours of graduation within the term in which they start the SUGS program and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 may apply.

B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering / M.S.E. in Industrial and Operations Engineering

Non-IOE engineering students pursue the IOE master’s degree either as the first step toward the IOE Ph.D. degree, or more typically to enhance their qualifications for business-focused professional engineering careers. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.5.

B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering / M.S.E. in Macromolecular Science and Engineering

The Master’s in Macromolecular Science and Engineering degree is a 30-credit program focusing on polymer science and engineering, with several specializations from which to choose. A 3.5 GPA is required to apply for this program.

B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering / M.Eng. in Manufacturing

The Master of Engineering in Manufacturing (M.Eng. in Mfg.) degree is a professional practice-oriented degree designed to further the education of engineers who already have experience working in industry and plan to return to an industrial environment after completing their studies. The degree requirements can be completed in one calendar year (12 months). This degree combines course work from various engineering disciplines (80%) and business (20%). Applicants to this program must have completed 80 or more credits of coursework with a GPA of 3.2 or better.

B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering / M.S.E. in Materials Science and Engineering

Students who enter a Chemical Engineering program out of an interest in chemistry could opt to pursue a master’s in Materials Science and Engineering. This master’s degree enhances their understanding of the relationship between chemical structure, processing and material properties, which in turn prepares them to pursue careers in research, design or manufacturing of materials. A GPA of 3.5 is required to apply.
