Information sessionSign up here for our ChBE Graduate School Information Session on August 5 at 6 p.m. Eastern time.

As stated in our Strategic Plan as Strategic Goal 7: Lead Chemical Engineering in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, ChBE will lead diversity, equity, and inclusion practices in chemical engineering to increase participation of individuals from underrepresented groups at all levels in academia and industry and realize the benefits of diverse thought.

ChBE is a member of the Equity in Graduate Education Consortium, and we base our holistic admissions review process on their recommended best practices. Note that we do not use the GRE in our admissions process.  Fee waivers for financial hardship may be requested.

The final date to submit an application is December 13, 2024. We strongly encourage early submission, as admissions are made on a rolling basis.

Most students enter the PhD program directly from the BS.  Most MS students take the coursework non-thesis option, which does not provide funding.  If you are particularly interested in the MS thesis option, please contact Prof. Grover before applying, or consider the GT-EQUAL program.
