Department Website

The Department of Chemical & Materials Engineering (CHME) at New Mexico State University (NMSU) dates to 1924. Coursework at the graduate level offers both depth and breadth in the discipline, and includes: (1) traditional chemical engineering fundamentals (thermodynamics, transport phenomena, kinetics, and numerical methods); (2) practical elective offerings in topics such as advanced process simulation and applied statistical methods; and (3) and applied topics in relevant areas of modern research (nanoscience, biomedical engineering, alternative energy, and others). Through the funded research of the faculty, the NMSU CHME program offers study opportunities in areas of engineering materials of modern significance to a wide breadth of high-tech applications. Students completing the program find positions of leadership in the industry, government, and academia.
