Come discover the great research and learning opportunities in the chemical engineering graduate programs at Ole Miss
At the University of Mississippi, you can pursue a masters or Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering. You’ll find interdisciplinary expertise in energy, polymeric materials, nanotechnology, separations, environmental engineering, drug delivery and more.
M.S. and Ph.D. Engineering Science – chemical engineering emphasis
With these programs, you’ll be able to apply chemical engineering science – such as transport phenomena, thermodynamics, chemical reaction engineering and applied mathematics – to complex projects. You will gain the foundation for a successful career in engineering, medicine, professional education, public policy, the military, management and sales. And, a Ph.D. will equip you with the experience to conduct research -generating and disseminating new knowledge.
An overall B average in undergraduate course work taken at Ole Miss or other approved colleges is required. We are looking for students with a strong academic background in chemical engineering or related fields. We’ll also consider students with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences (chemistry, physics, etc.) but they might need to complete several undergraduate courses prior to full admission.
The university’s Graduate School can help with the application process and our department’s graduate program coordinator can help answer your questions about the specific programs within the chemical engineering department.
