Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering

Chemical Engineering is not chemistry – it is the bridge between chemistry and the real world outside the laboratory. Meanwhile Materials Engineering is a scientific approach to improving the performance of materials in real world situations by examining the relationships between their structure, properties, and processing. The Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering attracts some of the best and brightest people to study these disciplines, with 50+ professors and researchers, over 300 graduate students, and more than 500 undergraduate students working in the area.
