The mission of the Department of Chemical Engineering is to be the global leader in chemical engineering education and research. We train students to be the best in shaping and solving complex problems, particularly the translation of molecular information and discovery into products and processes.

Our programs are enriched by an emphasis on leadership; fundamental understanding of physical, chemical, and biological processes; engineering design and synthesis skills; and interdisciplinary perspectives on technological, economic, and social issues. Our focus is education.
