Potential graduate students:

Interested students should apply to the Graduate School through the Department of Chemical Engineering and email Dr. Reinemann at with a statement of intent to apply, statement of research interests/motivation, and CV.

Graduate Admission and Preparation

The chemical engineering department offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in engineering science. These degrees provide the opportunity to tailor a graduate program to the student’s interests. Interdisciplinary research opportunities exist in the broad fields of energy, polymeric materials, nanotechnology, separations, environmental engineering, drug delivery, and more.

Admission Requirements

A competitive graduate student considered for admission into the Department will:

  • have an undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale,
  • achieve a minimum score of 155 on the quantitative portion of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test,
  • provide a CV or resume, including contact information of at least two professional references, and
  • provide a statement of research interests and future goals.

Prospective students not meeting one or more of the above requirements may still be admitted by specific faculty recommendation. The application and admission process is administered by the Graduate School. Students should apply online here.

All graduate students admitted to the program will be considered for financial support contingent upon funding availability. Continued financial support is dependent upon funding availability and demonstrated performance.

Potential undergraduate students:

E-mail Dr. Reinemann directly at with your request and your motivation for wanting to join the lab.  The field of molecular biophysics is highly interdisciplinary, crossing boundaries in biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering.  You do not have to be a biomedical engineering student to work in the lab!
