Course content

The MSc program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering offers advanced levels of chemical and biomolecular engineering courses so that the graduates can become confident and competent chemical engineers at a senior level or as leaders.

Program Objectives
This Master of Science (MSc) program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBME) is designed for students who wish to acquire an in-depth understanding of a particular area of chemical and biomolecular engineering while strengthening their overall knowledge at an advanced level.

The Master of Science (MSc) program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBME) program provides students with updated knowledge on products development, process and energy integration, waste minimization and treatment, material sciences, biomolecular science, and biochemical processes. This is a unique Master of Science (MSc) program that covers knowledge in areas of bioengineering / environment / nanotechnology, which are the three focal areas of HKUST.

The program not only offers advanced chemical and biomolecular engineering courses beyond undergraduate-level for students but also enables students to take several electives from other related programs.

Students of the Master of Science (MSc) program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBME) are required to complete at least 30 credits of coursework, with at least 12 credits of foundation courses and 6 credits of elective courses. Students shall take 10 3-credit taught courses or 8 to 9 taught courses plus one independent MSc project offered from the program. Each course except CBME 6980 listed below carries 3 credits. CBME 6980 carries 3 or 6 credits. Subject to the approval of the Program Director, students may take a maximum of 9 credits of non-CBME postgraduate courses as partial fulfillment of the program requirements.

Regular attendance of courses is expected. Courses of the Master of Science (MSc) program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBME) are assessed according to the grading scheme used for postgraduate courses. Students in the program must complete the program with a graduation grade average (GGA) of 2.850 (of a 4-point scale) or above as required for all postgraduate students at HKUST. If a student Master of Science (MSc) program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBME) fails to meet the graduation grade average requirement, the student is required to repeat or substitute the course(s) at a per credit fee.
