A Balanced Education

Developing responsible engineers for industry, community and environment

Chemical Engineering is a broad field amenable to numerous industries, from petroleum, paper pulp and pharmaceuticals to polymers and semiconductors. The program's flexibility allows students to pursue independent research projects on topics such as surfactants, optimization of heat exchanger networks, adsorption, and phase equilibria of polar fluids.

Independent Research

landing pg3In addition to being an opportunity to prepare for grad school, undergraduate research experience is valuable in preparing students for employment.

Interdisciplinary Work

landing pg2Our curriculum provides students with the opportunity to learn the foundational concepts while concentrating in many areas.

"Universal" Engineers

landing pg1Because of the breadth of their technical and scientific background, many fields that require technical training are open to chemical engineers.
