Clarkson's graduate program in chemical engineering has been growing steadily since the first doctoral degree was granted in 1965. Typically 50 to 75% of our graduate students are in the doctoral program. Clarkson also maintains a research-based Master of Science program and a project-based Master of Engineering program.
The graduate program is designed to prepare students for careers in research, development, design, and education. Admission to graduate study will be granted to qualified applicants who hold a baccalaureate degree in chemical engineering from an accredited institution or who have equivalent qualifications.
The Department is housed in the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) Building on Clarkson's hill campus, and has excellent research facilities for conducting state-of-the-art research.
To learn about the current research activities of our faculty members, please visit the individual faculty web pages.
The Coulter School of Engineering maintains a website which provides information for current and prospective graduate students regarding a variety of topics. At this website, prospective students will find information regarding how to apply for admission and financial aid, and a listing of areas of specialization in graduate studies offered by the various programs in the School of Engineering. Information for current graduate students includes instructions regarding how to prepare MS and PhD theses, a WORD template for thesis preparation, and a listing of graduate fellowship opportunities from Federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the Department of Defense. Also, a variety of forms required for documenting progress through a graduate degree can be downloaded from the website. The website can be accessed by clicking here.
The Chemical Engineering Graduate Handbook contains essential information for current and prospective graduate students in our department. Download a copy of the handbook.
