    If you do NOT receive a letter of offer from us by April 10th, you should then contact us if you have any questions.

    We appreciate your patience during this busy time of the year.

    Financial Support

    Admitted Ph.D. students are typically offered financial support in the form of teaching or research assistantships, which include full tuition. Admission into this program is very competitive, though, and you must have the intention of completing this program. M.S. students are typically admitted with no financial aid. Information regarding tuition and other costs can be found here.

    Transfer of credits into M.S. or Ph.D. programs

    Students may transfer up to 9 credits of graduate courses obtained from another US accredited university. The following conditions and procedure is required to transfer any credits.

    In order to be counted towards graduation, the credits must be evaluated by Chemical Engineering Program committee and faculty. The evaluation must establish equivalence between a course being transferred from another institution and a CME course in Stony Brook, which is accepted as part of the graduation requirements. The faculty member must be one of those who are teaching the corresponding graduate course on a regular basis. The professor typically evaluates the course materials/contents, student transcripts, etc. The approval is not automatic and we generally take a very careful look at such transfer requests.

    Graduate courses that do not meet the previous requirement can be transferred without being counted towards graduation. This can sometimes be useful because students who have earned 24 graduate credits of any kind need to be registered for only 9 credits (instead of 12) in order to have full status. Therefore, gaining this status early might reduce tuition liability.

    M.S. to Ph.D

    A student in the M.S. program from CME or any related field at Stony Brook can subsequently apply for admission into the Ph.D. program, only if the student can be supported by an advisor to complete the PhD program in CME at Stony Brook. The students will require to complete a change of level/program  form and will enter the PhD program as a G-4 student.

    The CME Ph.D. program also recognizes M.S. degree from other accredited US institutions, person that has M.S. degree in CME will still require to complete courses totaling 24 credits. The student will be accepted as G4 level student and expected to complete all requirements towards the Ph.D. degree.

    requirements for these six credits as follows;

    (i) Non-Thesis: Six credits of special topics (CME 596), additional electives or research (CME 599) , and
    satisfactory completion of a capstone project as part of the specialization elective course selection.

    (ii) Thesis: Six credits of research courses (CME 599), which culminate in an original Master’s thesis.
    Students may automatically transfer into the PhD program at the completion of this track.

    Requirements for the Ph.D. Degree in Chemical and Molecular Engineering

    A. Plan of Work 
    Before completion of one year of full-time residence, the student must have selected a research advisor who agrees to serve in that capacity. The student will then prepare a plan of further coursework. This must receive the approval of the student’s advisor and of the Graduate Program Committee.

    B. Coursework

    • An average grade of B or higher is required for all courses. 
    • A minimum of 24 graduate course credits is required to graduate (excluding CME 599, 697, 698, and 699). 
    • The 24 course credits must include the following four core courses: CME 501,502,503 and 504. If the student does not receive a minimum of a B in a core course, he or she may repeat that course one other time. 
    • All students must complete CME 555 Teaching and Mentoring Techniques. 
    • The student must pass at least three credits of CME 698 Practicum in Teaching and six credits of CME 699 Dissertation Research on Campus. 
    • All courses taken outside the Department require permission from the Graduate Program Director.
    • All PhD students must act as teaching assistants for five semesters (regardless of support), and they must register for CME 698 Practicum in Teaching - 0 credits for four semesters, 3 credits for one semester.

    C. Preliminary Examination
    The preliminary examination must be taken before the beginning of the student’s fifth semester. This is an oral examination designed to test the student’s ability to utilize his or her chemical engineering background to carry out research in a chosen field of study, and to make clear written and oral presentations of research. At least ten days prior to the examination, the candidate should submit a research proposal (10-15 pages) to the examiners that places the research in context of other work in the area, demonstrates original thought , clearly outlines its broader impact,  and  provides a sustainable  timeline  for its completion.

    The examination committee will consist of three Chemical and Molecular Engineering faculty members, and one member from another department or institution. If a second examination is required, it must be completed by the tenth week of the fifth semester.

    Once the student has advanced to candidacy, the student must report to the committee at least once a year before the end of the spring semester on progress towards his/her dissertation.

    D. Advancement to Candidacy
    After the student has successfully completed all requirements for the degree, other than the dissertation, he or she is eligible to be recommended for advancement to candidacy. This status is conferred by the Dean of the Graduate School upon recommendation of the Chairperson and the Graduate Program Director.

    E. Dissertation
    The most important requirement of the Ph.D. degree is the completion of a dissertation, which must be an original scholarly investigation. The dissertation shall represent a significant contribution to the scientific literature, and its quality shall be compatible with the publication standards of appropriate and reputable scholarly journals. At least two semesters should elapse between the preliminary exam and submission of the dissertation.

    F. Defense
    The candidate shall defend the dissertation before the examining committee. 

    G. Time Limit
    All requirements for the Ph.D. degree must be completed within seven years after completing 24 credit hours of graduate courses in the program.

    Requirements for the Bachelor of Science Degree/Master of Science Degree Accelerated Program

    The Accelerated BE/MS program is designed to allow Chemical and Molecular Engineering (CME) students in good academic standing to graduate with both a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree in five years. This is made possible by allowing the students to take up to 6 credits of graduate courses to substitute for 6 credits of undergraduate specialization courses as an undergraduate student that can be counted towards the MS degree, consistent with the Graduate School policy. However, the undergraduates can only take graduate technical electives (not core courses), totaling 6 credits and completing the remaining 24 credits to fulfill the 30-credit requirement for completion of the M.S. degree in their fifth year. 

    The program will be highly selective, and it is anticipated that only a few students will be admitted each year. The admissions requirements for students entering the accelerated degree program are as follows:

    1. Applicant must be a senior in the CME major with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.3 at the time of application and must graduate from the undergraduate program that year;
    2. GPA in courses required in the CME undergraduate major of at least 3.3;
    3. Three letters of recommendation from Stony Brook faculty members.
    4. Please contact the department at to apply to the program.

    Applications are reviewed by the CME Graduate Admissions Committee and students will be notified if they have been admitted to the Accelerated Program. The BE/MS is a sequential degree program; Students typically matriculate to the graduate career at the beginning of their third semester in the accelerated program. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher to be admitted to the Graduate School. The Master's in Chemical Engineering is a 30 credit program and 24 of those credits must be earned as a matriculated graduate student.

    Students who transfer to Stony Brook must complete at least one semester at Stony Brook before they will be considered for admission to the five-year BS/MS program and decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis to ensure they meet all other requirements to qualify for the combined degree program.
