Chemical Engineering, PhD

Degree: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Field of Study: Chemical Engineering


Program Overview

A PhD in chemical engineering will allow you to contribute more deeply to the impact of engineering on society. You will push the frontiers of science and help develop the technologies that will solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges in energy, materials, the environment, human health and more. With the most advanced degree in chemical engineering, you will have a wide range of high-level career opportunities in which you can be the decision maker.

Full financial support packages (tuition and stipend) are available for our PhD program, which has three components: research, technical coursework and professional development. At Case Western Reserve, you’ll get the chance to conduct your research alongside field-leading faculty mentors who are making boundary-busting discoveries—from developing advanced biosensors to inventing new and more efficient ways to produce ammonia to pioneering a more effective way to scrub carbon dioxide from the air on outer space missions.  You’ll build your own research portfolio and get the chance to publish your work in peer-reviewed journals and present at national conferences, with all of this work culminating in your PhD dissertation.
