As a degree that is typically the first step toward a career in research, the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering (M.Sc) program is designed to give students the firm foundation they need to achieve greater things. Besides taking courses in chemical/petroleum engineering fundamentals, each student produces and defends a thesis. Engineering fundamentals are usually the thesis topics for the M.Sc. This focus stands in contrast with the M.Eng. thesis, which is typically aimed on an industrial problem.
