Director's Welcome

Chemical Engineering at OU

A message from our Director, Dr. Brian Grady.

What an exciting time to be a Chemical Engineer!   Chemical Engineering is at the forefront of the energy revolution in the United States, and are involved with other technological issues such as food and water supplies, environmental stewardship and medical issues.   The University of Oklahoma has a well-known and dynamic program in Chemical Engineering and the fact that our graduates are extremely well sought after by a variety of different companies is evidence of the excellent preparation you will receive as a student here.    We also prepare our undergraduate students for a less common path, graduate  school or medical school, as well.  Hands-on learning in our laboratories, and interactive learning in the classroom, are a hallmark of an OU Chemical Engineering Education.

Research is an important part of what we do here.   All of our graduate students have a research component to their degree, and about half of our undergraduates have hands-on experience in a research laboratory.   Focus research areas include nanotechnology, oil and gas recovery, biofuels, surface-science, surfactants, tissue engineering, polymer membranes and genetic engineering.   Please examine our website for more information about our program, and please join our Facebook page which has a link at the bottom of this page.    Please don't hesitate to contact me if you ever have any questions.
