The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Rice University offers an outstanding program for graduate study leading to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. A professional master's degree (MChE), involving only course work, is also offered.


Our graduate Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering program at Rice University is large enough to offer research topics in several important areas of chemical engineering and related fields, but small enough to retain an atmosphere where student and faculty can have extensive personal contact. In addition, interdisciplinary research projects provide ample opportunities for students to interact with researchers from other disciplines, especially through the interdisciplinary institutes.

The programme

Rice University seeks to attract to its faculty, staff and student body qualified persons of diverse backgrounds. In accordance with this policy, Rice does not discriminate in admissions, educational programs, or employment against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, age, disability or veteran status. University policy also includes affirmative action in seeking to recruit, hire and advance women, minority group members, individuals with disabilities, Vietnam era veterans and special disabled veterans.
