Chemical and Biological Engineering


The Graduate program in Chemical Engineering offers students a broad range of cutting edge research areas led by faculty who are world renowned in their areas of expertise. Research areas are broken into five main categories: Polymer Science, Biological Engineering, Mathematical Modelling, Environmental Engineering and Transport Phenomena. Opportunities for collaboration with many other department across the University are abundant, including departments in the Colleges of Engineering, Natural Sciences, and the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering houses state-of-the art research labs. Additionally, the University’s Central Instrument Facility (CIF) provides 24-hour shared-user access to several instruments. This facility is maintained by five full-time staff scientists. The Macromolecular Resources Center is a campus wide service facility that maintains a variety of mass spectrometers. Proteomics and metabolomics services are provided combined with sample preparation procedures and extensive data interpretation.
