Program Objectives: A graduate of our program will
- be a skilled and knowledgeable researcher in an area
- be well-versed in the application of fundamental
chemical engineering principles to the solution of a variety of problems
- have the communication skills needed to succeed in an
English-speaking professional environment.
- Ten faculty and 40 graduate students in 2005-2006
- 38/40 of students supported through the university
- State-of-the-art research facilities with a high
level of student-faculty interaction in a safe, small-town atmosphere
- GRE general (quantitative emphasized)
- TOEFL (minimums: 590 paper, 243 computer, 96
internet) or IELTS (minimum 7.0)
- We look closely at performance in chemical
engineering coursework on the transcript. We look favorably on students who
specify an interest in one of our research areas and articulate their
reasons in their personal statement.
- Students with degrees in related science and
engineering disciplines may be accepted, but additional coursework may be
Admissions and Financial Support
- M.S. students admitted only for Fall; Ph.D. students
may start any quarter.
- Admission decisions made as applications arrive.
Financial aid awards made in late March for Fall. Submit applications by
mid-January to ensure consideration. Financial aid awards at other times
possible, dependent on external grants for research. The number of
applications typically exceeds financial aid resources.
- In Fall 2005, we welcomed 14 new students with
stipends of $14000 - $18000 plus tuition scholarships. An additional three
students were offered support for tuition.
- For 2006-2007, we will offer stipends of $15000 to
selected M.S. students and $19000 to selected Ph.D. students, both with
tuition scholarships, plus several offers covering tuition only.
