  1. Does anyone have a story or experience or opinion about the American University of Sharjah (AUS)? I'm thinking about applying Master in Chemical Eng and get funded by Teaching / Research Assistantship in AUS but I have no idea about this campus.
  2. I am an International student from India and have applied for the Ph.D. program in Chemical Engineering with a focus in drug delivery, nanomedicine and tissue engineering at MIT, University of Michigan, UPenn, UIUC, Cornell, JHU, UCLA. I have also applied for the Ph.D. program in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University and Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Wisconsin Madison. However, I have not heard back from any of the schools although many students have already received their admits. I am surprised that I have not received admit from any of the schools. Can anyone please help me with the same? I have the below-mentioned profile: B.E. (Chemical Engg): 8.72/10 (top tier university) M. Tech (Chemical Engg): 9.88/ 10 (IIT Bombay, topper) GRE: 323 (V: 153, Q: 170, AWA, 3.5) TOEFL (110) Presently working in Tata Steel R&D Research projects: 5 (1 junior year research project (published), Summer internship at IIT Kanpur (not published), B. Tech thesis (published), M. Tech thesis (published and patented), Tata Steel R&D project (Patented)) Journal publications: 1 first authored paper, 1 second authored paper, 1 first authored review paper, 1 first authored research paper under revision Conferences attended: 4 Patents: 2 Awards: Silver Medalist (M. Tech), Best M. Tech thesis award, Ambuja Young Researcher's Award in India Fellowships: SURGE Fellowship for Summer Internship at IIT Kanpur, GATE Fellowship for Master's Students LOR: Strong
  3. Hi everyone. I'm planning to apply for a PhD in Chemical Engineering for a Spring term intake. Therefore, I contacted via e-mail some US universities that accept Spring admissions (I checked it on their websites). However, most of those universities said that "very few students are admitted for Spring", "we admit for Spring only if there are available spots" or "if a professor requests a Spring admission for a certain student, we can consider it". Based on all these answers, I understand that most of those universities does not have a cohort for Spring admitted students, but can accept some students occasionally according to the department’s needs. As the main term of admission is Fall, I am afraid that Spring admissions for engineering graduate programs are so less common (or rare) that it might not worth the try. My point is: does a Spring application worth the try for most engineering PhD programs? Has anyone here ever been admitted for Spring in a Chemical Engineering graduate program (or related areas) in a US university? Thanks in advance!

    Grad School Dilemma

    I would like some advice from current grad students in the chemistry field who got a BS in chemical engineering; I am currently getting a dual degree BS in chemistry and engineering. I have to transfer to another school to get the engineering part of my degree and I think it will be about 2.5-3 years at that school. I am already in my third year at my current school, so that would be six years total from the start because I would start on my engineering degree in Fall 2019. Because it is a dual degree, there are four classes that most chemistry majors must take that I am not required to take and just have to finish up next semester with a few math courses required for the engineering part. However, I really think I want to go to grad school for analytical chemistry. I've started realizing if I pursue this path then getting the engineering degree would be pointless as I would not ever apply it to a job (right?). It would be a major waste of time and money (was planning to go to Georgia Tech). If I am lucky I could finish grad school in 5-6 years, so I would finish around 2025 (I would have to finish those few chemistry courses if I switched to just a regular chemistry degree and because of how they are offered at my school would not be able to finish until Summer 2019 or Fall 2019). If i pursue the engineering degree and end up going to grad school anyways then I would not be finished with school for 9-10 years! I still really enjoy engineering, but I love analytical chemistry more than anything, so I am really feeling like I should not waste those 2.5-3 years of my time (and money! since grad school is "free"), but at the same time a Chemical Engineering Degree from GA tech would be able to land me a great job. I want to go to grad school because again, I love analytical chemistry and would love to specialize in it. I love research and I know that is a must for grad school. But thinking about going to GA tech and taking more specific chemical engineering classes also makes me very excited. Should I just say screw it and go for the engineering degree as well? Or is it a much smarter idea to not waste my time and money? I suppose I could always apply to grad school at tech because they have a decent enough chemistry department.
  5. I'm applying to grad schools next year and I'm going to be the first in my family to pursue a PhD so this is honestly kind of nerve wracking. The reason why I am posting here is because I have good academics but mediocre research and recs. Here's my stats: Major: ChemE (top 4 of ~25 students) GPA: 4.1/4.3 Rank: Top ~12 out of ~240 students GRE: 167V/170Q/4.5W Research No peer-reviewed publications in refereed journals. Freshman year research published in school journal Sophomore year research in new lab wasn't very good or productive Junior year research in same lab presented at an AIChE conference Working towards a publication in same lab (but I don't know whether I will be done by grad school applications) Did work study in a psychology lab sophomore year as a work-study student, nothing really came of it Recs Probably will not be great. Not sure what to do about this. Freshman year research adviser expects us to write our own recs, it usually never works out for undergrads because we don't know how to write recs Sophomore + Junior research adviser barely knows me, other than the research I've produced (which only recently started working out) Most profs only know me from class Awards Large institutional scholarships (financial aid) Two summer research grants at university Speaking prize at AIChE conference Orgs AIChE Tau Beta Pi Teaching Teaching assistant for two undergrad courses and one grad level course
  6. I'm a fourth year ChemE student at an engineering college in India. I've applied to pursue M.S in ChemE in the US and received admits from Cornell, UMich, CMU and Northwestern. All this while, I was dead sure I was going to go to UMich, simply because I felt it was a really selective program and I loved the fact that you could do interdisciplinary projects that were funded by industrial partners. A couple of weeks later, I heard from Cornell University, which was initially the place I really wanted to go because of the research, before applying for the unis. UMich was quite an ambitious college. Most of the professors who I talk to, they all recommend Cornell because they're very aware of its prestige. I'm aware that the job situation is grim for international students in Chemical Engineering. Could you please advise which university would be better for me?
  7. Does anybody know which schools have already sent their acceptances?
  8. Can someone elaborate the specifics of the MS Chemical Engineering course offered in UC Berkeley University? (like duration of the course, objectives etc.)
  9. Hello all! Negotiating offers for a PhD in Chemical Engineering between Amherst, Georgia Tech, Cornell, Michigan, and UT Austin. Cornell's offer has proven to be most financially competitive, yet all are within the same stipend ball park. Interested in biological research, primarily regarding cellular engineering. Little bit about me: first gen college student, female, first gen US citizen (originally from Moscow, Russia), currently at Northeastern University and completed my elementary through high school education in NJ. Also, I'm a total work horse and prefer a heavily shifted work:life balance. Currently 21 years old, looking to complete my PhD by 25 in order to kick start my career then! Let me know your opinions!
  10. I want to be reviewed my SOP by others to find out your views & comments. If interested, please message me your email id so that I can send you my draft for review. TIA
  11. Hello all, first post! I am currently refining my list of schools to which I would like to apply for a PhD in Chemical Engineering. I believe I am a fairly strong contender, so I was wondering which schools offered top competitive programs in the field of computational catalysis. I have conducted extensive experimental research in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, but I would like to branch out more into the theoretical and computational side if possible. Please, let me know your thoughts! Thank you
  12. Hi buddies I'm a bachelor of chemical eng. and really really like to continue in the fields including space eng., astrophysics or cosmology... Anyone Anyone can help me and have any advice? please...I'll be grateful if anyone suggest even as a sentence. Thank you
  13. I know grad schools usually need three recommendation letters, and I think I have a good three from my department lined up (I haven't asked yet though!). However, I could also add a 4th one, as the professor offered to write me one (more as a character reference though, and not really speaking to academics/research) - is that okay and not overkill? Some more info: the 4th recommender is outside of my university (and outside of my field), but he is a fairly recent Nobel Laureate and is a well-respected researcher in his field! Thanks very much!
  14. Hi guys, I am an international student and taking Master's program in Chemical Engineering in the USA. I was lucky, got a scholarship from the US govt and My Univ. My school ranking is between 100-125 based on usnews.com. I had done 2 semesters while having a terrible health issue. I got one B for Fossil Fuel and Renewable Energy, one B- for Heat Transfer and three C for other courses. The problem is with 3 grades below B- usually, there might be a termination. I am so scary now. For the worst case scenario, I plan to apply to other universities and maybe transfer my credits. I will have only one year from my sponsor so I am looking for any Master program that can be done in one year with Chemical Engineering background. Do you have any idea about that?

  16. Hi, I just finished my junior year at a mid-tier school in the US, and I am beginning to look into chemical-materials engineering PhD programs. I'm at a bit of a loss as to what type of schools I should apply to. For reference, here are my stats: GPA: 3.96/4 Research Experience: 2.5 years by the time I am finished with my undergrad Publications: A couple in the works right now, likely to have one published and another one (first author) being submitted by the time I start applying GRE: Haven't taken yet, studying for it right now LoR: Can likely get three good ones, one from my PI and others from two professors I know well I'm also an American if that matters As I said, I am unsure of which schools I should look into. I clearly want to go to the best programs possible, but I also don't want to be the person who only applies to the top 10 schools and is crushed when I get no acceptances. Is there a "strategy" I should use when looking at schools? Should I even bother applying to schools like Berkeley and MIT? My main concern is even though I have a high GPA and decent research experience, my school isn't very well-known for engineering. I'm sure you all understand how confusing this whole process can be, so I appreciate any advice. Thank you.
  17. Hi there, Has anyone been accepted to any school? It looks like Stanford starts sending out acceptance emails today, and I get so antsy. Not sure if they send out all the emails today, or they will continuing sending out emails for the next few days.
  18. I've received an email about a week ago from a prof. At UMD college park asking if I would come to University of Maryland, Chemical Engineering, if I was offered full financial aid. I responded immediately saying yes and he forwarded my email to director of admission and cc'ed me. He added a nice comment on the forwarded email. Haven't heard anything since then and it has been 7 days. What do you think is my status? Should I contact the prof? I need some feedback!! Anyone who was in this position? Thank you!
  19. Looking for any insight in what people think is important for success both academically and personally. Both places are great in terms of research fit and are funded. The major differences are listed below. Boulder: Amazing location/fun to live POI seems excited for me to join lab Princeton: Slightly better fit academically and culturally (I am strongly considering staying in academia and the department seems very tight nit.) Closer to home plus more money. I'm moving with my fiancée and family is important to us. The extra money and proximity for Princeton would make it easier to travel home. However, her job is one that greatly benefits from having local activities and her day to day would be much more exciting in Boulder. My primary question to y'all is if you had a similar situation what school you would lean and why? I'm just looking for outside perspectives so any insight could be helpful.

    ChemE MS Descision

    UPenn vs Texas A&M vs CMU vs Purdue I have received acceptances from these 4 schools till now. I am mostly interested in pursuing a job after my Masters (with an inclination for environmental and sustainability related work). Not much interested in continuing the program to pursue a PhD. How would you compare the curriculum and the career services available in these four schools? Also to be taken into consideration is the high tuition at UPenn and CMU. But then, there's the Ivy School tag that comes with UPenn and the low tuition at Texas A&M. It would also be great if you could discuss the assistantship scenarios in these schools. I am awaiting results from UCLA, UT Austin (MS in Environmental and Water Resources engineering). It would be great if you could bring these into consideration as well. Let me know what you all think!
  21. Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone could tell me about the University of Waterloo's Chemical Engineering master's program or the school in general. Thanks!
  22. I have been accepted for the MS (NT) program of UFL, and I was wondering if anyone here could help me out by sharing you experiences or even the general quality of the teaching and research in the Chemical Engineering Department. Also comparing with universities like Purdue and Penn State, how does it fare in the Chemical Engineering Department? Thank You.
  23. Hey, Lets start a chain with all acceptances and where does each person plan to go. Chemical Engineering only
  24. Hi Everyone, I've received an email from a prof. in Columbia saying they were impressed with my credentials but since they cannot over commit, they are putting me on a "(short) waiting list" and I will be notified by April 15. My questions are: 1. Is there anyone else who was or you know of that was put on a waiting list and accepted? 2. What is the typical size of a waiting list? He says in parenthesis that it was short. 3. If I am accepted will I get funding? Is this a question I have to discuss at this phase or wait until after a notification? 4. What do I do now to increase my chances of acceptance? Thank you 0
  25. Hey all, I recently got accepted into UT Austin, University of Notre Dame, WUSTL and UCRiverside for a PhD in Chemical Engineering. All offers have similar funding and all the programs are pretty great, especially UT Austin and Notre Dame. I want to continue in academia so I want to make a good decision about my university. Any advice? Thanks!
