The doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) in engineering and applied sciences is designed to provide a flexible vehicle to tackle new and emerging areas of research that cut across multiple disciplines or are of interest to and within the expertise of our chemical engineering faculty. Areas of research within the chemical engineering program include:
- Biochemical engineering
- Biological engineering
Students must have a master's degree in science or engineering, with a graduate GPA of 3.25 and a GRE score above the 50th percentile.
Information on courses and admission requirements are found on the catalog page as well.
Although neither the GRE scores nor the grade point averages are used exclusively to admit or deny a student, students should have at least a GPA of 3.0 with few grades below a B in science and mathematics. GRE scores are not required, but if taken, scores near or above the 50th percentile will help your application.
Prospective students who meet the eligibility requirements (see Admission Procedure) must set up a meeting with their undergraduate advisor and the ChP graduate advisor to develop Plans of Work for the bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.
