Vince Holmberg lab


The UW Department of Chemical Engineering offers degrees of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Master of Science in Chemical Engineering, and Master of Science in Engineering. Graduate students study and collaborate with members of the faculty in an atmosphere more informal and intellectually vigorous than is usually found in undergraduate work. The range of interests among the faculty members is broad, so students have access to a variety of fields while receiving individual attention and guidance.
