Chemical Engineering M.S.


The Chemical Engineering M.S. program gives you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge in chemical engineering through research and coursework.

Our program places an emphasis on hands-on learning and offers students a chance to conduct sophisticated research with real world impacts.

Areas of research concentration include:

  • Biochemical engineering: reactors, metal-bacteria interactions, and chemical production
  • Bionanotechnology: hybrid bio/nano materials, drug delivery, biomolecular processes, nanocomposite hydrogels and microparticles, sensors and devices.
  • Energy engineering: energy storage and lithium ion batteries
  • Materials engineering: corrosion and erosion, electronic materials processing, ceramic processing, polymer films, conducting polymers, thin film materials and sensors, and flame retardants
  • Pharmaceutical engineering: dry powder processing, production of particle-based therapeutics, engineering of therapeutic particles, biomaterial scaffolds for drug delivery and tissue engineering, and treatment of diseases
  • Polymer engineering: thermophysical properties of polymers, polymer process modeling and control, molecular modeling, and molecular scale chemo-mechanics.
  • Process simulation: process design, optimization, and analysis; process control; numerical methods
  • Surface, interfacial and colloidal phenomena: soft and hard colloids, nano composites, biomimetic coatings, and imaging techniques.
