Powders and particulate solids are commonplace in industry but not treated in depth in the BCHE curriculum.  The MEPT degree bridges that critical gap.  The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering offers a special 4+1 program for highly qualified undergraduate students who wish to better prepare themselves for industrial careers.  The program allows a student to earn both the BCHE and the MEPT degrees at the University of Delaware.  For full-time students, this can be accomplished in five years. 

Students must apply for admission to the program prior to fall semester of their senior year, but it is preferred that application be made prior to fall semester of their junior year.  For admission to the program, the following minimum criteria will be applied:

  • A GPA in STEM courses of 3.25 on a 4.0 scale
  • An overall GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale

For other admission requirements, information about the application process, or additional program details, please go to: http://www.che.udel.edu/grad/mept/4plus1_Program.html.
