Minnesota is home to two universities that can give you a thorough education in chemical engineering. One school has an Associate's degree program. Both schools award Bachelor's degrees, Master's degrees, and PhDs. The average cost of tuition in Minnesota is $6,500 per semester.

When you begin your educational endeavors, you may want to start with a Bachelor's degree. A Bachelor's degree takes four years, so it requires a greater time commitment than an Associate's degree. This is because it gives you a solid understanding of the knowledge and practice of engineering theories. Courses you may take at this level include Chemical Reactor Analysis & Design, Transport Phenomena, and Chemical Engineering Transport Processes.

There are two post-graduate degree options you can pursue after you earn your Bachelor's degree. A Master's degree can typically be completed in two years of full-time study. A PhD may take anywhere from three to eight years, depending on how long it takes you to write and defend a thesis. Required courses at this level include Polymer Rheology & Processing, Transport Phenomena, and Analytical Methods for Chemical Engineers.

Since both of Minnesota's chemical engineering schools are part of the University of Minnesota system, tuition rates are very similar. The University of Minnesota Duluth is slightly less expensive. Tuition is $5,860 for residents and non-residents pay $7,692 per semester. At the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, tuition is $6,030 for residents and $9,155 for non-residents.

There are many financial aid opportunities at both of these schools. In addition to applying for grants and scholarships, you can look for an internship. The University of Minnesota Twin Cities helps engineering students land summer internships to pay for school.

If you want as many career opportunities as possible, consider becoming licensed as a Professional Engineer. You must first pass the Principles & Practice of Engineering exam and then apply for your license through the Minnesota Board of Architecture, Engineering, Land Surveying, Landscape Architecture, Geoscience and Interior Design.

Your actual salary will depend on your employer. However, O*Net reports that the average salary for a Minnesota chemical engineer is $84,000 per year. You may be able to boost your earning potential by joining the Minnesota Society of Professional Engineers and using their professional development resources.
