Bachelor’s degree

We offer a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering with optional track for pre-med students. We also offer a Combined BS/MS program for students who wish to earn both degrees in five years.

Master’s degrees

Graduate students can choose from traditional Master of Science (MS) degree with thesis or the non-thesis MS degree. We also offer a Master of Engineering (ME) degree for graduate students who do not hold undergraduate degrees in engineering.

Doctoral degree

Chemical Engineering PhDs graduate with demonstrated skills, knowledge, and research proficiency within their fields. Students should hold a Master’s degree and must earn 90 credits beyond the Bachelor’s, as well as producing a research dissertation.

About Cynthia

Cynthia has served as the Undergraduate Academic Advisor for the Chemical Engineering Department since 2003. She received an MS in Leadership Development from the University of Florida. She has been named the “Advisor of the Year” for the College of Engineering and received professional, departmental, and university awards for her accomplishments. Cynthia is the founding Director of ChemE Day, a department networking event that has connected over 1700 students directly with industrial mentors. She is the founding advisor of the Chemical Engineering Peer Advisor Group, this group provides unique student to student insight on academic and professional issues.

Cynthia served as the chair for the Engineering Advisory Council Professional Development Committee (2009 – 2011). Under her leadership the committee created the first College of Engineering Undergraduate Advisor Certification Program. This program was later used as a launching-point for the University of Florida advisor certification program. She serves the university level Leadership Knowledge Community. She has scheduled more than 50 industrial and academic speakers for the Undergraduate Seminar Series. Cynthia co-developed the Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Research Program that sponsors students’ research presentations at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers National Conference each fall.
Cynthia shares her enthusiasm for Chemical Engineering by teaching the departmental section of the EGS 1006 Introduction to Engineering and coordinating the ECH 4934 Professional Seminar class.
