Graduate students pursuing the Chemical Engineering program at Michigan Technological University work alongside faculty to advance fundamental and applied knowledge in chemical engineering and related fields.


Graduate research opportunities available to students in the Chemical Engineering program at Michigan Technological University are often interdisciplinary, with strong industry collaborations. Becoming part of nationally recognized research that improves the lives of people makes Michigan Tech chemical engineering an excellent choice for graduate study.

Current departmental research includes pioneering a microdevice—an entire miniature chemical plant on a silicon wafer—to rapidly determine a patient’s blood type, as well as designing process equipment to sequester CO2 using industrial waste materials.

Many of our new research projects are driven by University initiatives in sustainability, biotechnology, and alternative energy. Our core research thrust areas are

  • Process safety;
  • Process systems engineering;
  • Energy production and storage;
  • Sustainable engineering;
  • Applied thermodynamics;
  • Polymer processing;
  • New materials synthesis;
  • Minerals processing;
  • Iron and steel making; and
  • Biochemical engineering.

Cutting-Edge Research Facilities

Fully equipped laboratory facilities and analytical equipment support the department’s research efforts. Resources are available to study inorganic and biochemical systems and processes ranging in size from nanoscale to pilot plant. Students receive training in measurement and imaging methods needed for their research.Projects go well beyond small-scale laboratory demonstrations. At three stories tall and 6,500 square feet, our Unit Operations Laboratory simulates a real-world chemical-processing facility. Students receive industrially relevant, hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment for chemical processing, instrumentation, control, and data acquisition.
