degree is a non-thesis, course-based program designed to increase a student’s mastery of advanced subjects. Houston provides rich resources for collaboration in these areas with industry and researchers in the Texas Medical Center. Basic, Applied & Translational Research. The Master of Electrical Engineering (M.E.E.) Research in chemical and biomolecular engineering at Rice focuses on advanced materials and complex fluids, biosystems engineering and energy and environmental systems. The Electrical and Computer Engineering department offers two graduate degree programs. The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Rice benefits greatly from its location in Houston, Texas, the energy capital of the world and home to the largest medical center in the world. The CES research topics include cyber-physical systems, databases, embedded systems, distributed computing, mobile computing, networks, operating systems, and secure systems. While biology and biological processes are fundamental to our research, it is through the integration of engineering and technological tools that we expand basic and life science and positively impact human health. Applications for the annual Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium (GCURS) are due September 12. Our faculty and students do research and internships that are plugged in to what’s happening in the world of energy and health right now. The Master of Science/Doctor of Philosophy (M.S./Ph.D) degree program prepares students for a research career in academia or industry. Rice University civil and environmental engineers serve as master builders, environmental stewards, and integrators of solutions to complex challenges to sustain and improve the built and natural environment so that later generations will have an ever-improving quality of life. Research in chemical and biomolecular engineering at Rice focuses on advanced materials and complex fluids, biosystems engineering and energy and environmental systems. Houston provides rich resources for collaboration in these areas with industry and researchers in the Texas Medical Center. The Master of Industrial Engineering degree is a graduate degree program administered by the George R. Brown School of Engineering, with the participation of the Rice University Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Statistics, and the Rice Center for Operations Research. Research in CAAM ranges from design and analysis of mathematical optimization algorithms to modeling complex phenomena in areas such as climate science and real-time surgery to operations research and industrial engineering. Started in 2014, GCURS seeks to provide an outlet for undergraduate students to exchange ideas, learn about different areas of research, and gain confidence and experience in presenting their own work to a group of their peers.
