CEE Graduate Program

The Graduate Program

The Graduate Program offers training leading to the degrees of M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. Taking advantage of the complementary skills and expertise of the faculty, our graduate students pursue interdisciplinary and often collaborative research at the frontiers of chemical and environmental engineering. The main research areas include:

  • Biotechnology
  • Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology
  • Air Quality Systems Engineering
  • Water Quality Systems Engineering
  • Sustainable Energy
  • Molecular Theory and Modeling

Our graduate program is relatively new but highly productive and energetic. The inaugural class of graduate students entered in January 1999, and the first PhD degree in Chemical and Environmental Engineering was awarded in 2004. Currently our graduate program consists of more than 80 PhD and MS students. Our graduates already have a successful record of employment in industry, government, and academia.

In addition to exciting research opportunities offered by the faculty, most graduate students are provided with very competitive fellowship packages. Students conduct their research with state of the art facilities and benefit from outstanding infrastructure.
