M.S.;, Ph.D.

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Our graduate program in chemical engineering has two primary goals: to train students as leaders in research and development in industry and as faculty members at colleges and universities. We strive to create and advance knowledge in the fields of chemical and biological engineering. Relative to many peer institutions, Northwestern, in particular the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, encourages a high level of interdisciplinary and cross-school research interactions. Of the research-active faculty in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, over half have formal associations with other departments through full, joint or courtesy appointments, and half of those advise graduate students from other departments.
