Ph.D.- Chemical Engineering, M.S.- Chemical Engineering;M.E.- Chemical Engineering;
Graduate research in chemical engineering involves components of physics, mathematics, chemistry, biochemistry and microbiology. Active research areas include polymer science and engineering, composite materials processing, colloid and surface chemistry, solid state chemistry and physics, self assembly and nanotechnology, biochemical and tissue engineering, catalysis and surface science, pollution prevention and computer-aided design, and supercritical fluid science and technology. Much of the research in the department requires multidisciplinary efforts and chemical engineering students develop strong interactions with students and faculty in other departments and colleges.
Virginia Tech is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award doctorate, masters, baccalaureate and associate degrees.
