Chemical Engineering Program

Chemical Engineering deals chiefly with industrial processing to produce value-added products from raw materials. The processing of organic (crude oils, natural gas, lumber), inorganic (ores, air, salts) and biological (starches, cellulose, fats) materials into a wide range of useful commodity products, such as fuels, plastics, pharmaceuticals, fertilizers and foods is carried out within a framework of environmental sustainability and concern for worker/public safety. Emphasis is on the design, construction and economic operation of equipment in these areas, and on related research and development. Some emphasis on environmental studies and biotechnology is permitted through the choice of electives.

Biological Engineering

Biological Engineering, often referred to as Biosystems Engineering, integrates engineering science and design with applied biological sciences for the solution of problems involving plants, animals and the natural environment. It deals with patterns of relationships among organisms and their environments, and engineering design to develop processes, machines, and systems that influence, control, or utilize biological materials and organisms for the benefit of society. Graduates are employed in the agricultural and food industries, as well as in other resource industries such as forestry and mining.
