About the New MolE PhD Degree Program

The Molecular Engineering PhD program takes a rational approach to engineering highly- complex, multifunctional molecular systems, drawing on fundamental principles shared across various fields of engineering and sciences that develop materials with organic, biological or inorganic/organic hybrid molecular architecture. The interdisciplinary program trains students in the fundamental aspects of molecular engineering, including molecular design and synthesis, theory and computation, and molecular material characterization.
