MS with a Concentration in Electrochemical Energy

The coursework for a concentration in Electrochemical Energy provides the MS candidate with an understanding of the fundamentals and technological challenges associated with batteries and fuel cells.  Furthermore, students may choose to learn about electrochemical processes that will continue to rise in importance as sustainable routes to leverage renewable energy for the production of chemicals, fuels, and materials. Students satisfy chemical engineering core and technical elective requirements with no more than 2 courses outside of the department.

Any combination of four courses (12 points total) satisfies the Electrochemical Energy Concentration Requirement:

Course Number Title Professor
CHEN E9400 Research (Only 3 Points can be used to satisfy concentration requirement to be taken after completion of first semester.)  
CHEN E4201* Engineering Applications in Electrochemistry West
CHEN E4231* Solar Fuels


EAEE E4180 Electrochemical Energy Storage Systems


CHEN E4235 Surface Reactions


MECE E4211 Energy Sources and Conversion Modi
APAM E4260 Electrochemical Materials and Devices Yang
ELEN E4361 Power Electronics Preindl
CHEN 4860 NMR in Bio, Soft, and Energy materials


CHEN E4880 Atomistic Simulations for Science and Engineering Urban

* Scientist to Engineer (S2E) students are eligible to take this elective during the first semester and count the course as within the Department of Chemical Engineering.
