Our world-class labs and facilities allow you to integrate the principles of chemistry, physics, advanced mathematics, and chemical engineering unit operations. Here, you have numerous opportunities to apply and practice the principles taught in a traditional setting through our specialized laboratories with equipment for unit operations in transport, reactions, separations, and process control processes.
Our state-of-the-art instrumentation draws state and federal agencies, as well as industry, to conduct research projects, which our students and faculty help conduct. Our chemical engineering research labs are equipped with more than $2.5 million in instrumentation, for conducting experiments in new materials, catalysis, bioprocessing, environmental remediation, rheology, and mo
Our students also learn to apply process simulation through the software program Aspen, which the majority of the chemical process industry uses. Aspen allows you to process alternatives and the technical and economical feasibility of real chemical plants. Students have access to the computer labs in Madison Hall, with computers that include several other software packages for preparing technical presentations and reports, along with finding solutions to complex chemical engineering problems.
Chemical engineering students have access to the chemical engineering lounge, a comfortable hangout space exclusively for your major. The lounge is open 24/7 and located in Madison Hall, Room 216.
