The College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Engineering offer a variety of graduate study options. No matter what your field is, you'll have an individualized learning experience led by outstanding professors.

Chemical Engineering - M.S.

The core courses are offered in engineering mathematics, thermodynamics, reaction engineering, and transport theory. Topics offered as chemical engineering electives include polymer science, bioprocess engineering, advanced materials science and engineering, particle technology, fuel cell technology and independent study projects. In addition, graduate-level courses offered by other departments may be taken as electives with the approval of the chemical engineering department.

Environmental Engineering - M.S.

Faculty research interests emphasize the following areas: biodegradation of municipal solid waste and aqueous organics; biological conversion of waste materials to useful forms of energy, such as methane and hydrogen; life-cycle analysis of engineered environmental systems; bioremediation of contaminated ground water; coagulation, flocculation, and sedimentation in aqueous systems; mitigation of odor potential at wastewater and solid waste treatment facilities; bioremediation of contaminated ground water; environmental geotechnics; vertical subsurface barriers for the remediation of hazardous waste sites; transformation of slurry trench cutoff wall materials from the passive hydraulic barrier materials into active treatment materials while maintaining their passive hydraulic barrier characteristics; watershed processes and land surface-atmosphere interactions; appropriateness of existing numerical models for nonlinear transport processes in environmental systems; adsorption of heavy metals by microorganisms; characterization of pollution from agricultural sources.

Mechanical Engineering - M.S.

Faculty research interests are in the following areas: acoustics, bioengineering, bluff body aerodynamics, building energy conservation, combustion processes, composite materials, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), computer-aided design, computer-aided materials testing, computer-based mechanics, computer modeling of engineering systems, design theory and methodology, energy for transportation, flow-induced noise and vibration, fluid dynamics, fracture mechanics, heat transfer, hybrid powertrains, internal combustion engines, robotics, air-borne contaminant transport modeling, history of technology, nano materials, environmental degradation, materials processing.

Engineering 5 Year B.S. and M.S.

Undergraduate students who have completed three years in the chemical, civil, electrical, environmental, or mechanical engineering program at Bucknell, earned a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0, and who show aptitude for graduate study, may apply for admission to the integrated Engineering 3-2 program. This program permits selected students to complete all requirements for both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Science degree in five years. Those students who are selected receive a full tuition scholarship for the fifth year.
