About the Department:
The Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of South Carolina has 23 full time faculty members, ~85 graduate students (with >90% being Ph.D. candidates), and ~200 undergraduates. It occupies space in one third of the Swearingen Engineering Center, and about 40% of the new Horizon Building. The recent PhD program survey data released by the National Research Council ranked USC Chemical Engineering in the top 30 in the nation. Columbia is strategically located in the center of South Carolina, within a two-hour drive of the South Carolina Beaches (e.g., Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head Island), and the North Carolina Mountains (e.g., Asheville, Smoky Mountain National Park).
Please email CO2REU for general questions regarding the application process and administrative details of the REU Program.
