Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering
As of July 1, 2010 the the Departments of Agricultural and Biological Engineering and Chemical Engineering have been merged into a new department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. Both undergraduate programs of Chemical Engineering and Agricultural and Biological Engineering will continue to be offered through the new department. Further details will be posted as these changes are implemented. Undergraduate and graduate students should see no changes in their programming as a result of this merger.

Chemical Engineering is the understanding, designing, and analyzing of chemical, biochemical and electrochemical systems, environmental and waste issues, fluid flow and fluid properties, heat transfer, power and energy, process control, and separation and purification of materials.
Chemical engineers design, implement and improve technology to make life more comfortable for mankind, while keeping public safety in mind. Chemical engineers manipulate chemicals on a large scale by designing and operating complex processes that convert raw materials into more useful products.
Biological Engineering is the application of engineering principles to any process associated with the production of biologically-based goods and the management and protection of our natural resources. Biological engineers develop efficient and environmentally-sensitive methods of producing food, fiber, timber, bio-based products and renewable energy sources for an ever-increasing world population. These engineers directly contribute to the improvement of our quality of life, right here in Saskatchewan and Canada, as well as around the world.
