Doctoral students in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering are required to complete a series of core courses and electives for a total of 48 credit hours. In the Combined Degree Program, students take core chemical and biomolecular engineering courses in kinetics, thermodynamics and transport phenomena, and focus their electives in the biological sciences by taking courses in biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology offered by the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program. These classes are held both on the Uptown and Medical School campuses.
