The Graduate Program in Chemical Engineering offers personalized education, with small class sizes providing personal instruction, in an affordable, pleasant, and safe rural community. A low student-to-teacher ratio means advisors spend more time consulting with students on their research projects. The department has excellent faculty whose qualifications and experience are diverse and comprehensive.
Faculty research involves a broad range of activities that are at the frontiers of chemical engineering fundamentals and have application to relevant industrial problems. The faculty possess a broad range of experience and are routinely in contact with industrial counterparts. This contact enables them to convey a practical experience and perspective on many of the fundamental concepts that are presented in the graduate program.
