The Accelerated Master’s Program in Chemical Engineering (AMP EnvE) is a program designed to enable advanced UA undergraduate students to complete both the Bachelor of Science degree and the Master of Science degree in EnvE in a total of 5 years. This program is available only for undergraduate students in 1) chemical engineering, 2) civil engineering, and 3) soil, water and environment science at the U of A.

How to apply
In early January of the junior year, students submit an online application to the Graduate College, specifying environmental engineering as major subject. The student will also have the opportunity to indicate explicitly that the application is for AMP EnvE. After acceptance to the AMP program, students register during their senior (fourth) year to take a combination of undergraduate and graduate courses. These courses will serve both as electives for the BS degree and as core or elective courses for the MS. In the fifth and final year, students focus on graduate course work and their thesis or project.
To be considered eligible to apply for the AMP EnvE, students must:
- Be a continuing University of Arizona undergraduate.
- Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3.
- At the time of application, have completed a minimum of 75 units of undergraduate course work; a minimum of 12 undergraduate units must have been completed in the students major at University of Arizona’s main campus.
Research experience as an undergraduate is not a requirement, but it is desirable.

Required GRE Subject tests: not required but Must have Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3 and be a University of Arizona continuing student (Junior status)
After admission into the AMP EnvE program, students must select an advisor who will guide the student’s research or development work towards the completion of a thesis or master’s report. Writing a thesis or a report project is required. CHEE 400 level courses that are convened with 500 level courses can be taken as electives for both the BS and the AMP programs – the 500 version of the course must be taken in this case. Chemical Engineering BS students should take the 400 version of CHEE 420/520 and 477R/577R. These two courses are required for the Chemical Engineering BS program and, therefore, the 500 version will not count towards the AMP. The AMP EnvE can be either thesis or non-thesis and will follow the same requirements of the regular MS program, which can be found in the Chemical & Environmental Engineering (ChEE) graduate students handbook: http://www.che.arizona.edu/graduates-student-handbook
