Graduate Admissions and Application Criteria
We provide a comprehensive, modern chemical engineering graduate program with exciting and research efforts in core areas such as nanoscience and nanotechnology, transport phenomena, reaction engineering, thermodynamics and molecular simulations, separations, and process systems engineering along with extensive cross-disciplinary activities in bioengineering and biotechnology and polymer science and materials engineering.
The department is also the first of its kind in the country to offer a full spectrum of graduate training and research in the emerging area of pharmaceutical engineering.
The program provides an intellectual climate for graduate students to conduct high impact cutting-edge research. It comprises 21 core chemical engineering and 20 interdisciplinary faculty members from various disciplines in engineering, physical and biological sciences. We are constantly looking to expand our teaching and scholarly capabilities to remain at the cutting edge of the evolving chemical engineering discipline. Our annual research expenditures exceed $7 million dollars.
We also offer experiential learning programs including a research traineeship with Colgate-Palmolive among other opportunities.
The graduate faculty in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering is particularly interested in attracting well-qualified candidates to its advanced degree programs. Graduate students engage in cutting-edge research making valuable contributions as respected members of our community.
