What to Expect
Whether you decide on Macromolecular Science and Engineering or specialize in Fire Science and Engineering, your coursework gives you a solid educational foundation for an increasingly in-demand field.
Across 30 credit hours—taken either online or on campus—you’ll learn about polymer synthesis, physical chemistry, biopolymers and more. Our Fire Science and Engineering track delves into topics such as fire behavior and dynamics, protection and suppression systems, and polymeric materials structure. The interdisciplinary nature of the program as a whole allows you to customize your program based on your interests and career goals, working with departments such as materials science and engineering.
But we don’t just teach science and engineering. You’ll come away from the program with a strong sense of self, communication skills, business acumen and abilities that make you a desirable job candidate.
