One of the oldest chemical engineering departments in the United States, our program has granted about 825 doctoral degrees and 890 master's degrees since it was founded in 1905. Alumni are active and influential in academic institutions and the chemical industry throughout the world. The strong demand for our graduates by both industrial and academic employers reflects both the merits of our students and the superior reputation of our program. Historically, over one-fifth of our PhD graduates obtain faculty positions, and UW is represented on the faculties of top chemical engineering departments nationwide and overseas. Recent graduates are listed here.
