Faculty members in the Department of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry frequently look for students to help out with research projects. These projects are suitable for a Fourth Year thesis (CHE499Y, or ESC499Y), a project for a Master of Engineering degree, or a Summer Research project in the Summer Research Abroad program.
All faculty have research projects for students. Not all projects are listed below. Feel free to contact faculty members directly to inquire about other possible projects or to propose your own project.
