Kevlar-based artificial cartilage mimics the real thing
A synthetic material can pack even more water without compromising on strength.
Nanoparticles can limit inflammation
It could be a lifesaver when the immune system goes haywire.
Q&A with Sharon Glotzer
The new chemical engineering chair lays out her vision for expanding the curriculum into the high-demand areas of data science and science & technology policy.
If chemistry is the central science, it comes as no surprise that chemical engineering underpins a broad range of technologies. We turn our expertise in producing and manipulating chemicals to energy, medicine, electronics and advanced materials with new properties.Explore Our Labs
Our broad range of research opportunities apply chemical engineering principles and modern science to solving some of today's most pressing problems.Apply Now
The program focuses on critical-thinking, preparing our graduates to identify and develop solutions for engineering challenges in the field. Students with a passion for chemistry and talent in math and problem solving typically do well in chemical engineering.Join Us!
