Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Chemical and Biomolecular engineers are solving some of the world’s most pressing problems.

How can we make more efficient solar cells?  Can a protein be engineered in order to better fight cancer?  Is it possible to manufacture synthetic fabric without fossil fuels?  Can nanotechnology be used to prevent disease? 

Researchers in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering are exploring all that and more. If you are interested in working at the molecular level to address issues at the global level, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering might be the course of study for you.

Our department offers two undergraduate degrees, one in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the other in Biomolecular Science.
