Overview

The MS and PhD degrees are primarily research degrees. Consequently, one of the most important objectives for entering graduate students is to participate in the processes for determining your research topic and advisor(s). 

Students must follow the guidelines described below for specific degree programs. Developing and maintaining an early working relationship with an advisor, who is responsible for mentoring, is extremely important. 

Students who for some reason do not complete these explicit processes for project and advisor selection on time must meet with the Graduate Study Committee (GSC) for their respective program to discuss whether they can remain in the graduate program. This meeting will take place before the end of the Fall semester of the first year of study and will be set up jointly with the GSC and student.

All core chemical engineering areas are represented, with special emphasis on environmental problems and semi-conductor processing. 

The Environmental Engineering Program has long-standing strengths in water and wastewater treatment science and technology as well as technology transfer, hazardous waste treatment, and development of environmentally-friendly technologies for industry.
