What will I learn?

Research activities in the Chemical Engineering and Materials Science (CEMS) Department focus on the development of renewable energy technologies, the solution of important medical and biological engineering challenges, the development of advanced materials and characterization methods, and the application of sophisticated mathematical and theoretical models. Graduate courses offered cover core areas of chemical engineering (fluid mechanics, applied mathematics: linear and nonlinear analysis, transport, chemical thermodynamics, statistical thermodynamics and kinetics, and analysis of chemical reactors) and core areas of materials science (structure and symmetry of materials, thermodynamics and kinetics, transport, advanced mathematics, electronic properties of materials, and mechanical properties of materials). In addition, several specialized topics are offered, including biochemical engineering, biological transport processes, colloids, principles of mass transfer in engineering and biological engineering, rheology, process control, ceramics, polymers, scattering, and electrochemical engineering.

The master of chemical engineering (MChE), also known as the professional master's, is designed for working professionals who are interested in obtaining a master's degree part-time. This degree requires a design project.
