What is Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering?

Chemical engineering is a broad and versatile discipline in which chemical engineers work on the development and application of processes that change materials either chemically or physically. This branch of engineering was originally based on the applications of chemistry, combined with the principles of physics and mathematics. Over time, and with increasing speed, it has evolved so that biological sciences and chemistry now fill the position once uniquely held by chemistry. This evolution led the School to add “biomolecular” to its official name in 2003. Revised undergraduate and graduate curricula reflect and support the diversification of the discipline.
