The Professional M.S. Program (PMP) in the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University can help launch your career and increase your earning potential! The program prepares students from both chemical engineering and non-chemical engineering undergraduate backgrounds for successful careers in industry, providing them with the technical skills they would acquire in a traditional MS program, while also developing skills needed in industry, such as leadership and management skills, business and financial skills, oral and written communications, teamwork, and defining and managing projects. Upon completing the program, graduates are prepared to be technical managers and can communicate, negotiate, and lead people and projects within a global engineering enterprise.
Distinguishing features of the program include:
- 1-1.5 Year Program: Students take a combination of advanced technical and management courses, earning a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering.
- Specially Tailored Coursework: Students choose from 6 concentration areas to gain specialized knowledge suited to their interests and goals.
- Real-World Problem Solving and Innovation: Students work with industry leaders and our world-renowned faculty on a 6-credit hour capstone project. This capstone project is the cornerstone of program, providing you with relevant, real-world experience.
- Advanced Professional Development Programs: Students receive one-on-one counseling and career development to prepare for success at Purdue and beyond.
- Career Catalyzation: Most graduates enter careers in diverse fields, often on advanced leadership tracks, while some students pursue further education, such as a PhD or MBA.
