UC Berkeley’s Professional Masters Program!

Product Development Program (PDP) Info Session Webinars

Thursday, 10/24 – 9-10 am PST

Thursday, 11/14 – 9-10 am PST

Tuesday, 12/10 – 2-3 pm PST

Applications for PDP21 (August 2020 to May 2021) are now open and will close on Monday, January 6, 2020. Come and virtually meet the PDP’s Executive Director, Dr. Keith Alexander, and a current student to learn more about our professional 9-month Master’s program in Chemical Engineering. Graduates of the PDP almost exclusively choose to enter industry to embark on a professional or managerial career related to bringing new products and technologies into commercial reality.

  • Thrive in a close-knit community; Each cohort can only hold up to 50 students.
  • Guide your coursework by choosing one of the following industry specializations or get creative and create a hybrid:
    • Advanced Materials
    • Alternative Energy
    • Biotechnology (Drug Development or Medical Devices)
    • Consumer Products
    • Manufactured Products
    • Microelectronics
    • New Ventures
  • Instead of a thesis, get industry experience by participating in a field project during your Spring semester where you will work in small teams to solve a product development challenge for a real company. Past clients include:
                 Amyris                              Applied Materials
                 Baxter                              Bayer
                 Bio-Rad                            Bolt Threads
                 Chevron                           Clorox
                 Clif Bar                             Corning

  • 100% of our students receive financial aid and a limited number of full tuition and fees scholarships are available.
  • GRE scores will automatically be waived for ALL University of California graduates and GRE score waivers are available for working professionals with 4+ years of relevant industry experience.        

“In addition to introducing me to the company where I now work, the PDP provided me with the framework to analyze technical problems from a practical market based perspective. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in working at the intersection of business and chemical technology.” — Joel Vincent ’11, Advanced Chemical Engineer, Eastman Chemical Company

“The flexible curriculum, experiencing the real world in a safe environment where it is OK to fail, and access to world-class faculty were my main attractions to the PDP in Berkeley. The short duration of the program constantly keeps you on your toes but provides you a well-rounded experience and the skill set you develop is easily transferable across industries.” — Vivek Narayanan ’10, Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers

“The PDP is a good choice when looking to change careers or industries. The PDP allowed me to bridge the gap between R&D for inkjet printer inks to pharmaceuticals without 4-6 more years of school. Coursework is diverse, spanning many different schools on campus (Chemistry, Haas, Public Health, etc.) allowing for more networking opportunities. Great value for the time and money spent.” — Jill Salelanonda ’07, Lab Manager, Gilead Sciences

Summer 2020 Teaching Opportunities

LSU Department of Chemistry Graduate Studies

The Department of Chemistry at Louisiana State University is looking for excellent students for our graduate program.

We have a large and diverse group of graduate students in our program, essentially all supported on assistantships or fellowships. We put a large emphasis on the training of women and underrepresented minorities, and have received major awards in recognition of our mentoring, advising, and science education efforts (Nature Award for Mentoring, Presidential Award for STEM MentoringACS Award for Encouraging Disadvantaged Students).  Our faculty believe firmly that we are here not simply to provide research advice but to also provide advising and mentorship.

Detailed information about our department and our graduate program can be found at chemistry.lsu.edu.  For questions about our research, students are invited to contact any of our faculty. For questions about the application process, they should contact Dr. Caroline Schneider at gradchem@lsu.edu. There is no application fee for domestic students.

Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) – Accepting Applications

The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program is accepting applications for the Fall 2019 term.  Applications are due May 29: https://science.energy.gov/wdts/suli/

SULI encourages undergraduate students and recent graduates to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at the Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 participating DOE laboratories/facilities. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects supporting the DOE mission.

The SULI program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s, Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOE laboratories/facilities.
