The Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering of NCU is one of the leading institutions in engineering education and is reputed for its world-class accomplishments in research. The department offers a curriculum with a broad spectrum of courses, uniquely merging the core chemical engineering training with the fundamental knowledge of materials science/engineering and further strengthened with the in-depth studies on emerging research and industrial fields.
The research and teaching interests of our faculty members include: Biochemical & biomedical engineering, catalysis & reactor design, thermodynamics (chemical, solid-state, fluid-phase equilibrium), colloid & interface science, electrochemistry, packaging of electronic materials, novel material synthesis, polymer science & engineering, and soft matter physics & materials. Through close collaborations among our faculty members and conduction of cutting-edge research in the department, we bridge the interfaces among different disciplines and are in a better position to widen the horizon of our students and educate the interdisciplinary-minded engineers of the future.
