Doctor of Philosophy in Chemical Engineering

Program overview

The PhD program in Chemical Engineering is a thesis-based program with opportunities to specialize in areas including process engineering, process control, materials engineering and bioengineering. We train skilled engineers that find novel ways to solve problems that have significant impact on everyday life, ranging from climate change to food security. Our faculty members are experts in fields such as green chemical processes, polymers and nanomaterials, new battery materials, environmental health diagnostics and the fundamental study of the properties of materials. We place particular emphasis on developing sustainable solutions for the energy sector as well as other sectors. PhD graduates in Chemical Engineering are typically employed as consultants and research engineers in industry and government labs or as faculty members in academia.
