Through elective courses, however, you can tailor the program and focus on specific disciplines, including:

  • Biochemical Engineering
  • Nano and Advanced Materials
  • Energy and Sustainability
  • Cell and Genetic Engineering

Through the two-semester Senior Project Studio, Chemical Engineering majors can participate in an industry-sponsored design or research project. In addition, a number of students work directly with professors, which can lead to co-authored papers and presentations at industry conferences.

 

Recent undergraduate research projects include:

  • Optimization of T cell growth and manufacture
  • Preparing LtEc-alginate hydrogels for animal cell culture
  • Synthetic production of plasmids for gene therapy
  • Optimization of wetland microbial fuel cells using novel electrodes
  • High temperature CO₂ sorption by mesoporous lithium orthosilicate
