A new partnership with Miami University and Mount St. Joseph University will allow undergraduate students majoring in chemistry at the Mount to access an accelerated pathway to receive a Master of Chemical Engineering at Miami. The new 3+2 articulation agreement is the Mount’s first for an engineering graduate degree and the second agreement for a graduate degree with Miami.

The articulation agreement between the two universities allows at least four undergraduate students who have a cumulative grade point average of a 3.25 for all previous college-level courses. Students will apply to Miami’s graduate school when they reach senior status at the Mount.

“We at Miami are looking forward to welcoming students from Mount St. Joseph University to our graduate program in chemical engineering,” said Shashi Lalvani, professor and chair of chemical, paper and biomedical engineering. “The students' training in chemistry as undergraduates coupled with Miami's emphasis on engineering will allow them to become well-rounded professionals."

“We are excited to launch this new program with Miami,” said Maggie Davis, Ph.D., associate provost of the Mount. “This will provide our students an affordable option to earn a master’s degree at a highly respected university. Engineering is a growing field and our students will have their liberal arts background with their chemistry studies and transition that to Miami’s excellent graduate engineering program.”

Miami and the Mount also offer a graduate pathway from a B.S. in Mathematics to a Master of Computer Science.
