Life. Energy. Environment. This triad of engineering priorities is perhaps unmatched in its potential for improving the quality of life for all inhabitants of planet Earth. And at the heart of all three is chemical engineering.
We turn our expertise in producing and manipulating chemicals to energy, medicine, electronics, and materials with new properties under the umbrella of three thematic research areas: life, energy and environment.
Chemical engineers conceive and design processes to produce, transform and transport materials — beginning with experimentation in the laboratory and followed by implementation of technologies in full-scale production.
In addition to traditional careers in the chemical, energy and oil industries, chemical engineers are finding increasing opportunities in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, electronic materials/device fabrication and environmental engineering.
