– GRE scores and letters of recommendation are not required, but a final transcript with proof of a BS from a United States accredited university is required. A short personal statement detailing the background of the applicant and their interest in Pharmaceutical Engineering is also required. Applicants should also submit their resume with their application.
– To apply to the Non-Degree program of study, please apply on-line at the Graduate School New Brunswick. To apply, search for the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Program of Study and choose the Non-Degree option. Make sure you discuss you are interested in Pharmaceutical Engineering in your personal statement.
– Permission to enroll in a specific course is granted by the department by assigning a special permission number.
– Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 with no more than two grades less than B in the core courses to remain in the non-degree program.
– Students are allowed to take up to 4 courses (12 credit hours) as non-degree students. Students are graded and receive a transcript. These courses on the transcript are preceded with the letter “K”. At a later time, if the student desires (and has maintained a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 with no more than two grades less than B in the core courses) they can apply for a change of degree status to a degree program. Students who have not taken the GRE and would like to pursue the MS, ME or PhD program can apply for a change of degree status without the GRE. If a student is accepted into the MS, ME or PhD program, the courses with K-prefix will count toward the degree and the K-prefix is deleted from the transcript.
– In general, students with an engineering, pharmacy or science background tend to do well in the pharmaceutical engineering courses.
Before applying for the Non-Degree program of study, we strongly recommend that students contact the Director of the Pharmaceutical Engineering Program at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to ensure that they meet all program requirements.
