One of the oldest departments of Newark College of Engineering, the Otto H. York Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering awarded its first three baccalaureate degrees in 1923.
Ph.D. students in NJIT’s Chemical Engineering program are expected to originate and advance research in their area of study, while also preparing to become leaders in academia, industry or the government. The Ph.D. candidate enters as a student, progresses as an apprentice scholar, and graduates as a colleague of his or her mentor.

Last year, NJIT awarded 62 bachelor's degrees in chemical engineering, 41 master's degrees, and 5 PhD's. Chemical engineering currently enrolls the largest percentage of female students of any department in Newark College of Engineering -- 41 percent of the department's students are women.
To be considered for acceptance into a doctoral degree program, you are required to have an appropriate academic background as described by the individual Ph.D. program and evidence of a high level of achievement, including GPA in your prior studies.
PhD Degree Requirements (modified for students entering the program after September 2015): For students entering the program before September 2015, see here. a.Ph.D. coursework registration requirements. Ph.D. students with a recognized Master’s degree or equivalent are required to take four 700-level 3-credit courses (12 credits). Ph.D. students with a recognized Baccalaureate degree are.
A master’s degree in Chemical Engineering is the gateway to diverse fields such as biotechnology, energy systems engineering, pharmaceutical engineering, environmental technology, specialty chemicals and polymer processing. Students work closely with professors on cutting-edge research in areas such as bioengineering and biomaterials, catalysis and reactions, computing and.
Materials Science and Engineering is the study of the mechanical, physical, and chemical properties of engineering materials, such as metals, ceramics, polymers, and biomaterials. A materials engineer predicts and controls material properties through an understanding of atomic, molecular, crystalline, and microscopic structures of engineering materials.
The objectives of the Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering program are to provide the knowledge and develop the skills that students need to become leaders of research in academia, industry and government. This program is intended for highly qualified students who wish to pursue advanced research in industrial engineering and related areas.
The program is for superior students with master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering, or closely related fields, who wish to conduct a comprehensive research project resulting in an original contribution to the field of Mechanical Engineering.
Gennady Gor currently works at the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, New Jersey Institute of Technology.
Applicants are expected to have a broad background in engineering, mathematics, physics and computer science as well as a Master of Science degree in electrical engineering or a related field.
The pharmaceutical industry is a major employer of chemists, employing over 20% of graduates with BS, MS, and PhD’s in chemistry. Pharmaceutical companies need employees with strong skills in modern chemical techniques, as well as a good understanding of issues such as drug action, drug design, and drug development.
Graduate students have the opportunity to work with faculty on research in state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research centers in such emerging areas as engineered particulates, polymer engineering, microelectronics and nanotechnology.
He received his PhD in 2010, MS in 2006, and BS (Summa Cum Laude with a Minor in Physics) in 2003 in Chemical Engineering from OU. His dissertation research involved optimization of culturing conditions for artificial bone tissue using computational fluid dynamics (NSF), and his thesis concentrated on relating slip phenomena to contact angle on superhydrophobic surfaces via molecular dynamics.
