The department offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in civil engineering and in environmental engineering. Faculty members have a special interest and research expertise in four thrust areas: hydrology and water resources, structural engineering, transportation systems and environmental engineering. The department also offers a concurrent degree program with UCI's Department of Planning, Policy and Design that awards both a master of science in civil engineering in either the transportation or environmental focus areas (MSCE) and a master of urban and regional planning (MURP).
When can I apply?
Online application submission for Fall 2018 opened September 1st, 2017, and will be open until December 15th, 2017. *The online application deadline has been extended to January 15, 2018*
Am I able apply for a different quarter other than Fall?
No. EECS only admits students in Fall. We do not offer admission for Winter or Spring. If you miss the deadline to apply for Fall 2018, you will have to wait to reapply for Fall 2019.

Historically, the field of chemical engineering has had a long and rich tradition as one of the core engineering disciplines, built on a solid foundation in chemistry, physics, and mathematics. However, with the maturity of the chemical process industry, chemical engineering is no longer concerned only with flow in pipes, solution chemistry, chemical reactions, and unit operations. Instead, the past decade has seen a revolution in the field, characterized primarily by an increased interest in applying chemical engineering tools and analytical skills to study highly-interdisciplinary problems involving complex systems (e.g., in biotechnology and biological systems) and molecular-level phenomena (e.g., in microtechnology and nanotechnology). Since its inception in 1987, UC Irvine's Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science has directed its attention on cutting-edge problems beyond the scope of traditional chemical engineering, a trend now mirrored in most major academic institutions around the world.

General Department Information,
and Materials Science
The department has nearly 30,000 sq ft of laboratory and office space in the Engineering Tower. There are extensive facilities for research. The existing laboratories feature highly instrumented and computer-interfaced bioreactors, a peptide synthesizer, ultracentrifuge , UV-IR spectrophotmeter, high performance liquid chromatograph, gas chromatograph, supercritical fluid extraction device, compact equipment for spray atomization, MTS servo-hydraulic system, and UNIX workstations with state-of-the-art software. Students and faculty also have access to University wide resources including high performance computing (C3840 CONVEX computer with 2 gigabytes of physical memory). In addition, the newly formed materials characterization Center (MC2) provides excellent facilities, including optical, transmission and scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and metallography facilities, for microstructure and microchemical characterization of materials.
We welcome every alumnus to be involved with the department, whether it's a continuation of current involvement or the rekindling of a relationship with CEE@UCI. We warmly welcome you to share your experience, knowledge and expertise with current students.
You have the opportunity to be an integral part of the CEE@UCI mission to provide students with a broad, fundamental and flexible educational program and to expand engineering knowledge through an active and exciting undergraduate and graduate research program.
