Graduate Placement and Outcomes

Below you will find some statistics, from the broad research background of our current students to the success of our PhD’s through employment after graduation.
As a graduate program, our academic focus spans all aspects of the evolving polymer field, from synthesis to engineering and physics. Cross-disciplinary research is integral to our program and most often involves departments such as physics, chemistry, biology, and chemical engineering etc. Enrolled students with a wide variety of backgrounds contribute to these unique collaborations.

Current PSE students specialized in the following subjects as undergraduates:
Our primary goal is to prepare our students with the necessary skills to become innovative leaders in their chosen profession. Our alumni pursue careers in industry, academia and government. Below is a view of the fields in which our alumni are currently employed:
Since some of the world's top companies actively recruit on campus and meet with soon-to-be graduates, it is not surprising that these companies are well-represented in our statistics. PSE alumni hold numerous leadership positions across the globe. Given the industrial importance of plastics and the sheer number of jobs, many graduates prusue industrial careers as shown below:

Please review some of our alumni profiles [link] to read about many who successfully transitioned beyond graduate studies. The profiles include alums who regularly visit PSE in behalf of their companies as “it is clear that the department has a very impressive pool of young talent! It is evident that regardless of research area that the graduate students work in, the department continues to provide them an uniquely broad base to polymer science and engineering.”
