Graduate School at Brigham Young University

Graduate School in Process Control and Optimization

Up to 40% of the chemical engineering graduates from BYU continue with graduate school. If you are interested in Process Control and Optimization for graduate studies, the following list will help guide your selection as you apply to U.S. universities. I also teach an optimization course in the Winter semester ME 575 for those who are interested in taking this for an undergraduate or graduate technical elective. Other lists of professors in process systems engineering are:
