Degree Requirements
The general requirements outlined by Texas A&M University for the various graduate degrees appear in the Graduate Catalog, which also provides an excellent summary of the major steps required to fulfill the requirements for each degree. You should obtain a copy of the Graduate Catalog and become familiar with the requirements for your degree.
The two graduate degrees administered by the Chemical Engineering Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar are the Master of Science and the Master of Engineering. The following sections describe the requirements for each of these degrees in more detail. A Degree Plan, which specifies formally the exact courses required and the Advisory Committee for each student, is prepared by the student, in consultation with the Chair of his/her Advisory Committee.
For all of the degree plans listed below, students must demonstrate minimum scholarship standards to remain in the graduate program. Thus a student who falls below a 3.0 GPR has one academic semester to bring their GPR above this value. Failure to do that will result in dismissal from the graduate program. Similarly, a grade below C in any course will result in dismissal from the graduate program.
Chemical Engineering Master Degree Programs
Master of Science (MS) Degree
The Master of Science requires a minimum of 32 semester credit hours of approved courses and research. A minimum of 25 credit hours must be formal course work. In addition, the student must complete two credit hours of CHEN 681 (seminar) to satisfy the departmental requirements.  The remaining credits are for research.
Master of Engineering (M.Eng) Degree
The Master of Engineering degree requires a minimum of 30 semester credit hours of approved courses and requires no research credit hours.
Please note: As per the College Station announcement, the GRE requirement has been waived for Spring and Fall 2021. Also, there is the quick admit option for the TAMU/Q-CHEN BSc graduates. Nevertheless, if an applicant wishes to report their GRE, this is still possible through the application system. Concerning the assistantships, these are merit-based while the committee utilizing both the required metrics (GPA, etc.) and the whole application package (e.g., statement, recommendations, resume, GRE).
