Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE)

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering offers a graduate program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree in chemical engineering. The doctorate is a research degree emphasizing extensive and original approaches to problem solving.

Incoming students are assigned a temporary advisor to help plan their programs until they are matched with a major professor. The matching of students and major professors takes place early in the first semester of study based on the mutual wishes and best interests of students and professors.
