Our Chemical and Biochemical Engineering program combines classroom and laboratory learning with research and many opportunities for innovative, practical training.

Innovative, Practical Training

Our state-of-the-art labs give our students the resources to conduct research in areas including fermentation, distillation, pharmaceuticals, process engineering, biomedical engineering and biotechnology. Students use cutting-edge software to perform and interpret computationally intensive simulations and to visualize complex data representations.


Our low student-to-faculty ratio ensures that our expert faculty members work closely with students to provide them with the skills they need to begin their careers. Through our ABET-accredited program—which combines traditional classroom learning with laboratory experience—our students graduate with a solid understanding and appreciation of chemical engineering in the real world. Many of our undergraduates also participate in research, exploring fields including process engineering, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical engineering.
