Departments

The School of Engineering's academic departments reflect our deep academic roots and our dedication to adapting to the changing demands of scholarship and industry. For example, our Chemical and Biological Engineering department had its genesis during the first half of our history, as the Department of Chemical Engineering. As the need for bio-based chemistry grew, we met that demand with expanded curricula and dedicated researchers and faculty.

And because we’re a smaller institution, our departments are nimble, able to do the interdisciplinary work that today’s advances require.
