Due to the cancellations and/or postponements of the GMAT and GRE exams in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of the Graduate School is waiving the GMAT/GRE admission requirement for the Spring 2021, Summer 2021, and Fall 2021 for some programs. This program will be waiving the GRE. To see the list of programs that are still requiring the GRE, please visit the Office of the Graduate School’s Test Score Requirements Notice.
Our department has broad research interests in many cutting-edge areas in chemical engineering science. This includes design and characterization of emergent optoelectronic materials, self-assembly and mechanics of soft materials, synthesis and characterization of biopolymers, membrane-based separation, fluid property measurement/prediction, chemical catalysis and reaction engineering, modeling and simulation, treatment of waste using bacteria, removal of heavy metals from contaminated soil, gas hydrates for storing natural gas, crystallization for separating chemicals, biomass conversion, photopolymerization, electron-beam polymerization, Raman spectroscopy, modeling of heat and mass transport in chemical reactors, carbon storage, interfacial phenomena, data analytics and machine learning, and microreactor technologies. These projects have received support from industry and federal agencies including the National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, and the Department of Defense, among others.
Our faculty have received numerous national recognition such as NSF career award, DOE early career award, and fellow of American Institute of Chemical Engineers, etc.
The following deadlines have been established by the Graduate Affairs Committee:
For Domestic Students:
For International Students:
In order to ensure your ability to apply for resources from the College of Engineering, all students should submit their application two months prior to the International Student deadlines for the desired semester.
