Pitt2Pitt and Scholarship Information

Most of the programs on this page are Pitt2Pitt eligible. To qualify for the Pitt2Pitt Provost scholarship, students must have received their undergraduate degree in an approved major from Pitt in April or August 2020 and have a 3.5 GPA or above. 


The Swanson School is also providing additional supplementary scholarships, which have slightly more flexible application requirements. To check if you are eligible reach out to your desired program’s graduate coordinator. Applicants for this scholarship can apply using this link. After completing the qualtrics application, the link to the Pitt2Pitt application form will appear-- those applying only for the Swanson Supplemental Scholarship should not fill out that Pitt2Pitt form.

Bridge to Chemical Engineering's Professional Master's Program

Recognizing that students with undergraduate degrees outside engineering may be interested in the pursuit of a Professional MS in Chemical Engineering, the department has created a formal bridging program. The program prepares undergraduates from science, technology, and mathematics backgrounds to successfully pursue a Professional MS in ChemE. 

Chemical Engineering is a highly versatile degree program, drawing upon tools from the sciences, mathematics, and engineering. Our bridging program is designed to provide a smooth transition for students from the natural sciences and mathematics to graduate study in chemical engineering. It is our expectation that students pursuing this degree will depart Pitt as scientists-turned-engineers who are better equipped to achieve their career goals. Students who complete the program will find they are now eligible for additional roles in industry, oftentimes in management positions in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and petroleum industries in addition to many others. 

What is the bridging program?

PLEASE NOTE: The formal bridging program described below is not being offered until Summer 2021. HOWEVER, students who do not have a Chemical Engineering BS may still apply for Fall 2020 as compass students, and must complete ChemE’s informal bridging program. The program is offered by Pitt via Michigan State University and the procedures for the program can be found here.

Beginning Summer 2021: The Bridging Program takes place during the summer (4-week term starting in July) prior to starting your MS coursework. This is an intensive 6-credit summer course providing the highlights of ChE required to begin taking graduate coursework at the start of the fall term. The bridging course is only required for those students who do not have a traditional undergraduate engineering degree. 

Examples of Eligible Majors

The Chemical Engineering program welcomes students from various academic backgrounds, including but not limited to: 

  • Chemistry
  • Mathematics
  • Biology
  • Physics

Eligibility 

Applicants should have an undergraduate degree with high academic standing in engineering, chemistry, mathematics, biology, or physics. This program is available to Pitt undergrads as well as students from other universities with a STEM undergrad degree interested in pursuing a Professional MS in Chemical Engineering. 

Applicants from disciplines other than engineering who want to pursue this degree must complete the following coursework before the start of the fall term:

  • Ordinary differential equations (Pitt Math 0290, or equivalent) 
  • The Bridging Program during the summer (4-week term starting in July)
  • Please note that students whose undergraduate degree is in engineering are not required to complete the Bridging Program but students from some programs (e.g. Industrial, Electrical and Computer...) may find the program helpful. 

Program Requirements:

This program is designed that students can complete their Professional MS degree (31 credits) in 18 months from the start of the bridging program through the completion of their credit requirements as a full-time student as follows:

  • Entering Summer Term:
    • Students enroll in, or have already completed: Ordinary differential equations (Pitt Math 0290, or equivalent)
    • Complete 4 week Bridging Program 
    • Note: these credits do not count toward your 31 required credits toward the MS in Chemical Engineering
  • Fall Term:
    • Complete ChE 2201, ChE 2301, ChE 2410, and 1 elective course toward degree in Chemical Engineering, or 13 credits
  • Spring Term:
    • ChE 2101, 1 elective course, and Undergraduate Senior Design (ChE 0613), or 11 total credits (6 graduate)
  • Second Summer Term:
    • Time off or internship
  • Second Fall Term:
    • Complete remaining 4 MS courses towards degree in Chemical Engineering, or 12 credits

A Word from the Graduate Coordinator

"The Pitt ECE Department was founded in 1893 by two engineering giants, George Westinghouse (pioneer of  US electrical industry) and Reginald Fessenden (1st voice radio, 1st transatlantic radio). Since then the Department has grown significantly in terms of faculty size and student enrollment. The current enrollment of ECE Graduate Program is about 200. The Department is the home to many R&D centers and interdisciplinary collaboration. The Department also maintains strong and growing ties with industry. Our graduate curriculum offers a variety of courses in cutting-edge areas, such as high performance/space computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, nanotechnology, signals and systems, and power/energy systems."

A Word from the Graduate Coordinator

"Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is an interdisciplinary field. MSE is for students who genuinely want to be involved with using engineering science at the cutting edge of today's technological world. Modern MSE creates the “stuff" out of which we fabricate our society, using concepts of engineering design from the microscopic level of atoms, molecules, and electrons to the macroscopic scale of bridges, machines, motors, turbine engines, and supersonic aircraft. A major attraction of this major is the breadth of career opportunities available to graduates because of the impact and influence of materials on an ever-greater number of critical manufacturing and processing technologies and because of their critical role in vital areas such as transportation, energy, and communications."
