Chemical, Biological & Materials Engineering
Chemical, Biological and Materials Engineering is a dynamic discipline. Among the drivers of change in chemical engineering are the rapid developments in renewable energy. A degree in CBME, whether at the undergraduate or graduate level, affords our students many opportunities. You will find our professors highly qualified and our staff committed to providing you with the best as you focus on your educational pursuit.

- The three finalists for the Best Product Innovation, one of five ICIS Innovation Awards for 2013, are out and a collaboration between the Institute for Applied Surfactant Research and Novus International are one of the three finalists! The innovative product is the development of a new non-ethoxylated high-performance nonionic surfactant. This breakthrough technology was part of an effort to find potential new applications for hydrosyl methyl thiobutyric acid (HMTGA), a widely used feed additive.
