Our program educates engineers to design, develop and operate chemical processes to make useful products such as plastics, polymers, medicines, food, fuels, fertilizers, detergents, cosmetics, and consumer goods at minimum costs in a safe and environmentally sustainable way. Chemical Engineers also translate and scale-up processes developed by basic scientists into practical applications that benefit society and lead to economic development. In third year, students have the option to emphasize their course of study in a Chemical Engineering option or Biochemical and Environmental Engineering option.
