Dr. Yu Lei  





The Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering offers coursework and research leading to the Master of Science in Engineering degree.

The Doctor of Philosophy degree is available through either the Materials Science Ph.D. program, the Biotechnology Science and Engineering PhD Program, or the Chemical Engineering option in the Mechanical Engineering Ph.D. Program

The range of research interests in the chemical engineering faculty is broad. We offer graduate students opportunities for advanced work in processes, reaction engineering, electrochemical systems, material processing and biotechnology. The M.S.E. degree granted in these areas of concentration is equivalent to those available in a traditional chemical engineering program.

Support is available at attractive levels for all qualified students including research or teaching assistantships, tuition grants, as well as graduate fellowships and Co-ops with federal and industrial research organizations.
