Chemical and Biological Engineering Department
Chemical engineers find unlimited opportunities to solve the world's most pressing challenges and to invent the process technologies of tomorrow, in satisfying positions ranging from global, multi-national companies to start-up firms, from the medical field to patent law, and from research labs to universities. The core of the undergraduate program is focused on a well-rounded education, beginning with the foundations of math, physics, biology, and chemistry. As the student progresses, the curriculum becomes more advanced – building up to the critical analysis of chemical, biochemical, and petrochemical installations, and the design of efficient processing units. Students develop theoretical and hands-on expertise in fluid dynamics, heat transfer, purification, computer solutions to complex engineering problems, process control, kinetics, and reactor design.
The bachelor of science program in chemical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET
