Endless Career Opportunities

Chemical engineering deals with the physical, chemical and biological transformations of matter that are the basis for making useful products. With its emphasis on problem-solving skills, quantitative analysis and teamwork, a chemical engineering education provides an excellent foundation for future careers in medicine, law, business, consulting and management.

Our undergraduates benefit from the active research programs in the department. Ongoing cutting‑edge research ensures that the content of the undergraduate program is constantly renewed and maintained at a challenging technical level and that discovery learning is integrated into the program. In addition, our undergraduates can work with faculty and graduate students as research assistants, for pay or credit during the academic year or the summer months. More than 75% of our graduating seniors have participated in some type of research experience.

Areas of Study

  • Biochemical and biomedical engineering
  • New energy technology
  • Catalysis and reactions
  • Colloids and interfaces
  • Environmental chemical engineering
  • Systems biology
  • Materials, polymers, and composites
  • Thermodynamics; and transport and separations

 

What’s special about this program?

 

UD’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is consistently ranked among the top ten chemical engineering programs in the U.S. in most polls. Our objective is to cultivate graduates who will actively seek to provide technical, educational, public sector and/or business leadership in a rapidly changing, increasingly technological, global society and who recognize their professional responsibility toward the betterment of our community. Our faculty maintain an environment that enables students to identify and pursue their personal and professional goals within an innovative educational program that is rigorous and challenging as well as flexible and supportive.
