English Competency Requirement for Ph.D. Students
The Department of Chemical Engineering has introduced an English Proficiency requirement which integrates the goal of attainment of English proficiency with simultaneous enhancement of chemical engineering research capabilities.
The student can thus look at the English Competency requirement not as a barrier to or as a distraction from doctoral research, but as a beneficial component of doctoral studies. The department's policy requires demonstration of high level of competence in the use of English language, including reading, writing and speaking. The main elements of the policy are detailed below and on the left-side menu.
- Testing International Students
- Improving English Competency
- Attainment of English Competency
- Enhancement of English Competency
