Chemical Engineering

MS and PhD

Welcome to the graduate program in Chemical Engineering at Tennessee Tech University. With new leadership and an energetic faculty, Tennessee Tech’s Chemical Engineering Department blends scholarship and research with advanced studies, offering excellent opportunities to graduate students. The dynamic and flexible graduate program offers an M.S. in Chemical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Engineering with a concentration in Chemical Engineering.

Doctor of Philosophy Program

In addition to performing guided research in selected research topics, our Ph.D. students participate in a wide range of scholarly activities - publishing peer-reviewed research articles as primary authors, presenting papers and posters in national and international research and educational conferences, designing and fabricating new laboratories, participating in research proposals and mentoring undergraduate and M.S. students. Our Ph.D. students are professionally trained to work and think independently to succeed in an industrial or academic environment.

Students can enter the Ph. D. program directly after their B.S. program or can enter the Ph. D. program once they have completed their M.S. degree. Requirements for both entry points are given here.

To apply for the program, follow this checklist.
