As a chemical and biomolecular engineering major at the School of Engineering, you'll become part of a field that has contributed to the development of virtually every material common to modern life. Chemical and biomolecular engineers are involved with the production of plastics, pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, foodstuffs, synthetic rubber and rocket propellants. New technologies, from sensors to the production of bulk chemicals from renewable bio-resources, require the unique skills of chemical and biomolecular engineers.
The School of Engineering's Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering will provide you with a solid foundation in science and the engineering sciences. You will study advanced chemistry, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, heat and mass transfer, multi-stage separation processes and other related areas. You will also work with professors who are among the leading researchers in their field.
Graduates may choose from a wide range of activities, including research, process and product development, design and supervision of the construction and operation of industrial plants, technical sales and services, consulting, management and teaching. Opportunities in chemical and biomolecular engineering are virtually unlimited.
