Chemical engineering addresses a broad range of technologies to develop chemical transformations and processes, creating useful products, and materials that improve society.
We turn our expertise in producing and manipulating chemicals to energy, medicine, electronics, and materials with new properties under the umbrella of three thematic research areas:
By deepening our understanding of the fundamental processes of life, we can help improve human health. The department remains committed to both these missions.
Though the challenges implicit in sustainable energy production are immense, the department’s current research provides ample scope for optimism.
The department is committed to developing technologies that will improve and maintain environmental health.
