Solving the Chemical Puzzle
Pursue your doctorate and discover the versatility of chemical engineering, where you will work to produce renewable energy, manage hazardous waste and more. Learn the research methods and investigative procedures required in the field while working with expert faculty and in state-of-the-art facilities and laboratory equipment, like the atomic force microscope (AFM) system.
Most students who enter the graduate program in chemical engineering hold a bachelor of science in chemical engineering and have a solid background in chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics and the fundamentals of engineering.
The graduate program also includes provisions for study, leading to a master’s degree in chemical engineering, for students who have a bachelor’s degree in a related field, such as chemistry, physics, or another engineering discipline. These students register as undergraduates until they meet the prerequisites to the courses required in the master’s program.
Our Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering requires a minimum of 78 credits beyond the bachelor’s degree, of which 52 credits MUST be in the 500-above courses. In addition, at least 33 of the 78 credits MUST be in courses other than ChE 600 (directed Ph.D. study).
