Engineering the Future
The Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) integrates science and engineering to address global challenges from the molecular level up.
We apply molecular-level science to the design of advanced devices, processes, and technologies. Organized by interdisciplinary research themes, we seek to develop solutions to important societal issues and to educate the next generation of leaders in the fast-growing field of molecular engineering.

Meet the Dean
Nadya Mason is the dean of the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) at the University of Chicago.
Mason specializes in experimental studies of quantum materials, and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences. In addition to maintaining a rigorous research program and teaching, Mason works to increase diversity and improve communication in the physical sciences. She can be seen promoting science on local TV, at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, and in a TED talk on “Scientific Curiosity.”
Our faculty and students have access to world-class, state-of-the-art facilities both on the University of Chicago campus and at Argonne National Laboratory.
PME also boasts several core facilities, including the Pritzker Nanofabrication Facility and the Soft Matter Characterization Facility, that provide specialized tools and equipment which individuals in academia, industry, and government can access to pursue cutting-edge research and make groundbreaking innovations.
PME is headquartered in the William Eckhardt Research Center (ERC), 5640 S. Ellis Avenue, on the University's Hyde Park campus.
