Admission Requirements

  • B.S. degree in chemical engineering, bioengineering, paper science & engineering, or a closely related discipline
  • Minimum GPA of 3.3/4.0
  • GRE test scores and, for international students, TOEFL scores (minimum 90)

The final date to submit an application is Jan. 1. We strongly encourage early submission, as admissions are made on a rolling basis.

What kind of students are we looking for? Of course, you need a strong academic background. See our admissions requirements for the details.

While some students choose to pursue an MS degree prior to the PhD, it is not necessary to obtain an MS degree prior to entering the PhD program. Many students go directly from the BS to the PhD.
