Chemical Engineering (MS)

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Program Description

Chemical Engineering is part of a rapidly expanding field that requires interdisciplinary engineers educated in both the molecular and medical sciences. For every discovery made in the health and industrial sectors, a chemical engineer finds a way to develop and implement it on a large scale.

The MS in Chemical Engineering program at the Tandon School of Engineering prepares students to fulfill this unique role. Our curriculum introduces students to advanced design methods and provides an in-depth look at the research and development process. Our curriculum offers an advanced course of study to refine research skills, and students are taught the problem-solving skills to surmount any problem along the way.

As members of the program, students will have the opportunity to work closely with our leading research faculty. Tandon research areas include biopolymers at interfaces, bio-sensors, dynamics of complex fluids, nanotechnology and nanomaterials, process-systems engineering, protein engineering, and biomolecular diagnostics.

In the coming years, we expect to see a significant increase in the demand for capable chemical engineers. Our graduates will be able to explore a number of exciting fields — from chemical manufacturing, energy production, and health care, to biotechnology, nanotechnology, and environmental and consumer safety.
