The Howard P. Isermann Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE) is consistency ranked among the top graduate Chemical Engineering departments in the world, including a rank of #26 by U.S. News & World Report (2015). Faculty and students in CBE at the interface of fundamental sciences and engineering to solve some of the most critical problems facing humanity, including energy, sustainability, human health, and water security. They tackle topics ranging from advancing artificial pancreas technology for people with Type I diabetes, to understanding the behavior of bacteria in the microgravity of space, to using protein engineering, nanotechnology, and other tools to fight cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease.
CBE Students can pursue research and study in 11 areas: Advanced Materials, Biochemical and Biomedical Engineering, Bionanotechnology, Bioseparations, Complex Fluids, Drug Design and Delivery, Interfacial Phenomena, Metabolic Engineering, Molecular Modeling and Simulations, Process Control and Design, and Synthetic Biology.
The M.S. program in Chemical Engineering requires six thesis credits and is generally completed in two years. The M.Eng program involves formal coursework only and can be completed in as little as one year.
