The face of chemical engineering is changing, and we seek to mold that change for the common good. The department is building new efforts in areas of crucial societal need such as energy and sustainability, bioprocessing and nanotechnology.
We also have a vision for creating a new kind of chemical engineering graduate who can grasp the opportunities now offered by the globalization of the economic marketplace. Such graduates need understanding and direct experience of this "flattened" world. To implement that vision, the department is now constructing new programs in collabortion with the College of Business that will enhance the savvy of our graduates regarding technological competition on the world stage. Other new programs are also in the works.
The faculty is enthusiastic about the possibilities of this vision, and recognizes that our efforts represent the leading edge of internationalized education. However, the programs we have in mind require front-end investment before the longer-term payoff. Here are some of the investment needs:
