Chemical Engineering

Penn State graduate students are involved in research that covers the entire spectrum of chemical engineering, with a particular focus on biomolecular engineering, alternative energy, and nanotechnology.

As chemical engineering graduate student, you might design a better catalyst for a fuel cell, engineer a protein to perform a specific task, or manipulate forces to control the self assembly of nanoparticles. You might do this in a laboratory or using state of the art computational techniques in one of the following areas:

  • Biomolecular
  • Computational
  • Control
  • Energy
  • Fluid and transport
  • Interfaces and surfaces
  • Materials
  • Nanoscale
