Pursuing an advanced degree is an important step towards a rewarding, life-long career in the field of chemical engineering. The faculty of the Department of Chemical Engineering take great pride in providing the best possible educational experience for all of our graduate students. By combining broad fundamental understanding, as found in the core courses, with specialized skills obtained in elective courses, the foundation for a successful research experience is guaranteed. At each level of the graduate program experience there is close collaboration between the students and the faculty.
The majority of research opportunities are for PhD students. Students with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering who are interested in obtaining a PhD should apply directly to the PhD program. PhD dissertation work provides opportunities to obtain the skills necessary to define, formulate and solve novel problems and make a significant contribution to the field. Financially attractive fellowships and assistantships, which include full tuition waiver and stipend, are available to doctoral students.
We offer a limited number of assistantships for students that wish to pursue an MS thesis. The department also offers opportunities for non-thesis MS degrees on campus and through our outreach program. The department does not provide assistantships or tuition waivers for non-thesis study.
