All Chemical Engineering graduate students in good standing are fully funded by the department. Funding in the Department of Chemical Engineering is available in the form of fellowships, research assistantships, or teaching assistantships. Students receive full tuition, a stipend, and individual health coverage. Please see the Chemical Engineering website for more details on fellowships, research assistantships, and teaching assistantships.
Chemical Engineering in Practice:
Students accepted into the PhDCEP program will be supported via Chemical Engineering Department fellowships during the first calendar year; they will be awarded research or teaching assistantships during the entire period of participation in the thesis research project. During the final year of the program, PhDCEP students will pay tuition and living expense costs from their own resources, or from graduate student loans available through MIT and other third-party sources.
Funding may vary across programs. Please see the Chemical Engineering website for more information.
