Chemical Engineering - Ph.D.
Chemical engineering covers a broad range of industries, including petroleum, environmental, biotechnology, biomedicine, pharmaceutical, materials, food and more. This program of study is mainly concerned with the design, scaling (up or down), operation and control of the transformation and separation of raw materials into valuable products.
When applying for admission, students must state on the application the area of study for which admission is requested: Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
Students seeking admission to the Engineering Ph.D. program should meet the same admission standards as for the Engineering Master of Science programs. In addition, you are expected to have completed a Master's degree in an academic area appropriate to the proposed area of study and to have earned a graduate GPA of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale. Fulfilling the minimum requirement does not guarantee admission; an applicant who does not meet the above minimum, but appears to have reasonable potential for success as a Ph.D. student, may be admitted to provisional standing.
Additionally, all students applying to the Engineering Ph.D. program must meet the basic requirements for admission to a Ph.D. program (see additional requirements below).
