The Chemical Engineering Graduate Program seeks to provide a comprehensive and rigorous education for our graduate students, and has a dual mission:


Education. Our program seeks to produce chemical engineers who will contribute to the chemical and materials engineering industries worldwide. We seek a balanced approach that emphasizes both the fundamental principles of chemical engineering and the practical skills needed to succeed in the workplace. Our aim is to enable each graduate to continue learning and developing throughout an extended career in our changing and rapidly developing technological environment.


Research. Our program seeks to develop innovative science and technology that addresses the needs of industry, the scientific community, and society. We transfer our research through our graduates, industrial affiliations, publications and public presentations.
