Mission Statement


Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Undergraduate Education Mission Statement

To educate future leaders in chemical engineering who effectively combine their broad knowledge of mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology with their engineering analysis and design skills for the creative solution of problems in chemical and biological technology and for the synthesis of innovative (bio)chemical processes and products.

“Chemical engineers have the most diverse, interdisciplinary educational background of all engineers, with strong foundations in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and increasingly in the life sciences…As other industries, such as semiconductor manufacturing, biotechnology, and nanoengineering begin to appreciate the chemical engineers’ strengths, and as problems of an increasingly interdisciplinary nature come to the fore of engineering endeavors, the future of chemical engineering appears bright.”

– Vasilios Manousiouthakis, Professor
