Supervisory Committee

The supervisory committee for a master's degree candidate must consist of a minimum of three faculty members from student's home department with appropriate graduate directing status. The major professor is the chair of the supervisory committee and must be a faculty member from the Department of Chemical & Biomedical Engineering. Additional members may be appointed to the committee if deemed desirable by the major professor.

The supervisory committee for a doctoral candidate must have four members (including major professor). All members must have appropriate graduate directing status. The major professor is the chair of the supervisory committee, must be a faculty member from the Department of Chemical & Biomedical Engineering and must have appropriate graduate directing status. Two of the remaining members of the committee must be from the Department of Chemical & Biomedical Engineering, and the fourth member must be from outside the department. Additional members may be appointed if deemed desirable. The final members of the committee must be approved by the department chair.

After the members of the supervisory committee have been identified, the supervisory committee assignment form should be completed and returned to the departmental graduate coordinator. This form will be placed in the student's permanent file.

All committee members must be physically present for the Doctoral Dissertation Defense with the exception that one committee member may participate via distance technology.
