Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Ph.D.- Chemical Engineering, M.S.- Chemical Engineering

Format: Hybrid

Program Description:

The graduate program in chemical engineering offers students the opportunity to work on some of the most cutting-edge research occurring in the field today, as well as to expand their knowledge of the fundamentals of chemical engineering through coursework. To that end, an overarching goal of our graduate program is to create an effective learning environment that provides consistent high-quality educational opportunities, while simultaneously promoting scholarly achievement for both the faculty and students. We like to call this our "Community of Scholars" - faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and staff all working to better the department and raise the bar for excellence.

The department offers both a Master of Science (M.S.) in chemical engineering and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in chemical engineering. The M.S. degree is offered as either a thesis (full-time) or a non-thesis (part-time) degree. The Ph.D. degree is only offered as a full-time program. Most courses are offered in the late afternoon or early evening to make them accessible to part-time students pursuing full-time industrial careers.

Both full-time Master of Science degree students and Doctoral Candidates are able to select thesis topics from a diverse range of faculty research interests. Graduate student seminars, where our students present the results of their research, are held on a regular basis and provide an interactive forum for learning and exchanging ideas.
