Molecular Engineering @ UW: PhD Program Overview & Admissions Process

Filed Under: EventsMolE PhD

The Molecular Engineering Ph.D. (MolE) Program at the University of Washington is hosting a virtual information session featuring students, faculty and staff on October 12th, 2021 at 4-5PM PST

Students with bachelor's degrees in either engineering or the natural sciences – who are interested in developing innovative molecular"based solutions to pressing grand challenges in a highly interdisciplinary environment – are encouraged to attend. Participants will learn about how the MolE program differs from traditional departmental graduate programs, the MolE program's two focus areas (BioTech and CleanTech), and the ways in which faculty and students are engineering new materials, systems and processes from the molecular-level up.

To begin, MolES Education Director Alshakim Nelson will provide a brief overview of the program and then moderate a Q&A with a faculty panel. The second half of the event will feature three breakout rooms moderated by MolE students, in which participants can ask more specific questions about the BioTech or CleanTech tracks, or the admissions process.
