The mission of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is to provide high quality education to students at all levels, to lead in the development and organization of new knowledge, and to provide technical service to the community. Our objective is to maintain the quality of our educational teaching and research products at the level of the best in the world, and to provide students with the breadth of educational opportunities in the chemical and biological sciences and in engineering that will enable them to pursue productive careers.
UD offers premier academic programs focusing on the most compelling challenges of our time. Our courses are taught by distinguished faculty. Among UD's faculty are internationally known authors, scientists, and artists, including Nobel Laureates, Guggenheim and Fulbright Fellows, members of the National Academy of Engineering, National Academy of Sciences, and American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Faculty, graduate students and many undergraduate students conduct fundamental and applied research in most aspects of modern Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. We maintain an up-to-date program by the frequent addition of new faculty with expertise in novel and exciting research areas, and by existing faculty starting new research programs within their groups. We are among the most productive departments in terms of number of Ph.D. degrees that are given each year.
