Chemical Engineering Graduate Program
At North Dakota, we believe that the graduate experience should prepare you to achieve your long-term objectives and goals. Our program includes high quality research with substantial interaction between the student and the research advisor(s). We understand that you have made a conscious choice to pursue an advanced degree and we want to make sure that you get the most out of the graduate experience. We will work with you to structure a graduate program consisting of traditional course study, non-traditional studies (independent study, distance coursework, etc.), and research that will help you to achieve your goals.
Research interests in the department include: coal and bio-based fuels and chemicals; energy technologies, processes, and policies; heterogeneous catalysis; photocatalytic oxidation; polymer reaction engineering, synthesis, and rheology; organic aerosol formation and partitioning; mathematical modeling of multicomponent aerosols; polymeric membranes and composite materials; biocomposite, nanocomposite, and nanobiocomposite materials; organic photovoltaic materials; environmental impact of heavy metals and particulate matter; and development of carbon from waste material sources. Projects are often conducted through our interdisciplinary Sustainable Energy Research, Infrastructure and Supporting Education (ND SUNRISE) research program or in collaboration with the Energy and Environmental Research Center (EERC).
The Chemical Engineering department offers Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Master of Science (M.S.), and Master of Engineering (M.Engr.) degrees in chemical engineering. The M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are the most common options and financial aid is provided to the vast majority of students working towards these degrees.
