Chemical Process Industry - Master of Engineering in Chemical Process Industry
The MECPI is a 30 credit hour coursework and/or project-based degree with flexibility of program design for professionals in the Chemical Process Industry. Proposals for the MECPI may be submitted at https://chme.nmsu.edu/academics/grad/mecpi-degree-plan-proposal/. MECPI requirements are as follows:
|A minimum of 6 credits of CHME 500+ courses, 6 credits must come from the following:||12|
|Graduate Thermodynamics for Chemical Engineers||3|
|Graduate Transport Phenomena(s)||3|
|Graduate Numerical Methods in Chemical Engineering||3|
|Graduate Reactor Analysis and Design (s)||3|
|Three credits in Industrial Safety Coursework||3|
|Industrial Safety (Recommended) 1|
|Professional Communications Course|
|A minimum of 3 credits in professional communication||3|
|Professional Communication in Chemical Engineering|
and Graduate Seminar (both are recommended) 2
|Students are expected to take a minimum of 6 credits of electives from any areas such as chemical engineering, other engineering, business, economics, fundamental sciences, environmental sciences, etc., to be consistent with their personal MECPI theme or emphasis.||6|
|Optional Engineering Project Sequence or CHME Coursework 3||6|
|Chemical Process Design and Business Analysis||3|
|Chemical Process Industries Research||1|
|Advanced Chemical Process Industry Analysis||2|
CHME 548 Industrial Safety is recommended, though other course options with similar content can be proposed.
CHME 594 Professional Communication in Chemical Engineering and CHME 690 Graduate Seminar are recommended to fulfill this requirement , but students may propose 500+ level communications courses beyond CHME to fulfill this requirement.
Students will define and execute an engineering project through their employer while taking the following 3-semester course sequence (after completion of a minimum of 9 credit hours of CHME coursework toward the MECPI)
MECPI students may replace the project with an additional 6 credit hours of CHME coursework.
Students accepted into the MECPI program may use the online MECPI degree plan proposal form to request a tailored curriculum personalized to their individual needs based on their current or planned employment in the chemical process industries.
