Research is an integral part of our activities within the School of Chemical, Biological and Materials Engineering. All of our 15 full-time faculty members are active in research.
The department's excellence in research has attracted private donations that have led to the endowment of seven faculty positions (three chairs and four professorships). Thus, almost half of the faculty positions are endowed, which is truly remarkable.
The broad base of external research support is indicated by the fact that the current research projects receive support from 40 external sources, including the National Science Foundation, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Energy, National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Defense, Oklahoma Center for Advancement of Science and Technology, private foundations and 26 companies.
