Chemical and Biological Engineering

Degree Types: MS, PhD

Graduates of the Chemical and Biological Engineering Program develop mastery of modern chemical and biological engineering theory and practice through a core curriculum. They gain specialized knowledge through elective courses within and outside of the department.

PhD candidates collaborate with a faculty member to develop and pursue a research program that defines and solves a problem at the frontier of chemical engineering. MS candidates are also able to pursue research with the thesis option.

Current areas of research interest by faculty in the department are organized into the broad categories of: 1) biotechnology, bioengineering, and complexity, 2) energy and sustainability, and 3) materials and nanoengineering.

See Chemical and Biological Engineering Degree Requirements for specific classes and procedures needed to complete this program.
