Doctor of Philosophy in Chemical Engineering

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Chemical Engineering is designed for students interested in research and teaching. The program of study consists of coursework, a screening (qualifying) examination, an oral comprehensive (candidacy) examination, and preparation and defense of the dissertation.

A minimum of 42 credit hours is required for the completion of the PhD degree, including at least 24 credits in chemical engineering. No credits are given for dissertation research. A student entering the PhD program with a MS degree may apply up to 30 credits toward the required coursework, with the approval of the program director.
