Graduate Student Alumni

We value our graduate students alumni and this page is one way to recognize your accomplishments and to express our gratitude.  This page goes back to 1964, the year that marks the beginning of the Modern Department of Chemistry with the inaugural offering of a Ph.D. program.  For each year, the names are listed of the recipients of M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemistry and of their research advisers.  The thesis titles and links to the theses in PDF format will be added over time.  The information shown is a compilation of data received from the Registrar’s Office and of information posted at Scholars’ Mine.  In future and as time permits, we will continue to build the content of this page to include earlier graduate student alumni as much as will be possible.  Please return occasionally to monitor our progress.  Also, we are aware that this compilation may be incomplete.  If you are aware of a missing entry, please email the S&T Chem Webmaster with the pertinent information: name of graduate student alumni, graduate degree, year of degree, adviser, and a scan of the cover page of your thesis.  And here is an important point:  We will highlight your name on this page in bold face if you provide us with your current contact information (which we will not post) and information about your current employment (which we would like to post if you allow us to do so). 

Click here for a listing of current and emeritus faculty and the number of degrees they mentored / advised / awarded.  Counts are given for total number degrees, Ph.D. degrees, and M.S. degrees; the table entries are sorted by total number of degrees.  This list is updated irregularly and it is based on data available in Scholar’s Mine.
