What is Chemical Engineering at WVU like?
At WVU, we provide a wide range of research and educational opportunities for graduate study. Our smaller student population allows us to offer highly personalized education and allows advisers to spend more time with students. A significant portion of our research is funded by industry.
It should be emphasized that the PhD is primarily a research degree, and therefore the research work for a doctoral dissertation should show a high order of originality on the part of the student and must offer an original contribution to the field of engineering science.
