Major Research Areas:
The departmental faculty research and development interests cover a broad range of areas in reacting systems, thermodynamics, transport phenomena, systems engineering and characterization, all fundamental as well as applied in biomedical, materials including microelectronic, and environmental domains. Strong collaboration with the College of Medicine, Center of Microelectronic Research, as well as, Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Industrial Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science and Engineering makes most majors in Chemical Engineering truly interdisciplinary.
The Department offers core courses in thermodynamics, transport phenomena, reacting systems, math, and process analysis and modeling. A rich variety of electives are available regularly within the department as well as the University. Departmental research facilities include modern laboratories for polymer synthesis and characterization, supercritical fluid technology, life sciences, process control, instrumentation, computer aided process design, and phase behavior.
