Prospective Students

University of Wyoming Chemical and Petroluem Engineering graduate education

Thank you for your interest in the University of Wyoming's Petroleum Engineering department!  We encourage you to explore our Masters and Doctoral degree offerings, as well as our faculty's research interests to find the right fit for your academic and career goals. 

UW's Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Department is home to 29 faculty and approximately 75 graduate students.  Because of our relatively small size, we can offer you one-on-one contact to investigate a research problem, a low student-to-faculty ratio to maximize your classroom experience, and options to choose between small exploratory projects and large, well established projects, and between applied and basic disciplines.

We welcome qualified candidates to apply to our graduate programs.  A M.S. degree is not required to enter a Ph.D. program.  The following M.S./Ph.D. positions supported through research grants are available in our department:
