Admissions

Students admitted to the program usually will have a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from an accredited chemical engineering program. Admission is based primarily on the achievement of a 2.75 or better grade point average (out of 4.0) in all undergraduate chemical engineering courses, and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better. Applicants holding an undergraduate degree in chemistry from an accredited university, who have completed chemistry, physics and mathematics courses required for a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering at Howard University may be admitted on a one-year special program of course work only in preparation for transfer to the master's degree program. A grade point average of 2.75 (out of 4.0) in all chemical engineering courses is required for students in this program.
