Years of educating Chemical Engineers — one of the oldest programs in the country
Transform matter into solutions to society’s greatest challenges from the future of medicine to powering a sustainable society. Chemical engineers are developing and implementing creative solutions that help to improve the human condition.
Michigan chemical engineers are developing lab-on-a-chip devices to do genetic analysis and biomolecule synthesis. We are improving drug delivery and medical imaging by studying how molecules move and distribute throughout the body.
From energy-harvesting textiles to better batteries and solar cells to new materials for hydrogen storage and for electrocatalysis, the Chemical Engineering department is doing the research that will enable increased use of renewable energy sources.
Michigan chemical engineers have been using nanotechnology well before it became a buzzword. New tools allow even better control of nanoparticle growth, shape and properties – and better characterization of the final products.
